If you haven't heard of Castroville, it is a neat little town just west of San Antonio. It has often been a destination for us when we want to go for a nice ride. It is probably about 40 miles from here. Now Friday is the day that we go, and the destination we sometimes don't even decide until we leave the house... we just know we want to enjoy the day and have lunch some place nice. If we have a particular item we want to shop for, that can influence our decision of where to go, but it is kind of like our "date day", so the sky is the limit.
After we left the quilt shop is was approaching lunch time and Castroville has a really neat cafe on the green. The food is really good and the atmosphere is very quaint. There is an antique shop to the rear of the parking area... some day I may go explore. Today we chose to eat on the porch. There are tables under the trees in front of the porch as well, but we thought the porch looked appealing today.
On the way home we went by a few fields of sunflowers. It was a real reminder of our trips through Kansas. The neat thing about sunflowers in a field is they are always facing towards the sun, so in the picture of the field, they are all facing away from where we were.
Decided to take a couple pictures of my pouches that I made, the four from this afternoon, and the one I made yesterday. I think these guys are really neat and very easy to make.
Have a great weekend.
