Mama and I are spending the week in the Hill Country. We are staying on Canyon Lake which is near New Braunfels between Austin and San Antonio. I picked her up this morning about 10, we then went to Denton and dropped off some DVDs I had made for my cousin.

We stopped in West to eat lunch and to see where the fertilizer plant had exploded back in April 2013. The explosion was on the Northeast side of town. For some reason when it happen I was thinking it was on the South side of town. All the homes except for 1 had been torn down and a lot of new homes had been built. Mama had seen a show on TV about a café in West that was supposed to be real good but could not remember the name of it. She thought it was downtown. Since West is such a small town we drove all over town trying to see if she saw a place that looked familiar. We did not find it so ended up eating at Czech Stop we had their chopped brisket sandwich. It was good.

We arrived at the resort about 5:30 and by the time we got checked in, unloaded the car and settled in it was about 7.

I started going thru the travel literature and maps making our plans for tomorrow.
