Boerne is another neat area that’s fun to explore. Boerne is around a 30-minute drive north on I-10 and Highway 46 for me and I think it has a bit of a nostalgic feel. I met up with a friend at a cool little spot called, The Dodging Duck, for drinks and appetizers. They don’t sell hard liquor but have a solid selection of beer, ciders, and wine. You can also have mimosas or sangrias. We went with sangrias and they were delicious. We snacked on chorizo chicken nachos and fried green tomatoes. On the patio were two women singing songs from the likes of the Indigo Girls and the Beatles.
We took a walk down River Road Park. As far as photo opportunities are concerned, a photography lover would not be disappointed. It seemed nature was ready to have its photo taken. I have never seen so many turtles before! Keeping them company were various ducks and other birds. Families were fishing all along the trail and we also saw a couple of runners. It was also nice to see teenagers and 20-somethings hanging out and eating at the picnic tables located along the trail. I noticed the trail was free of litter which was nice; it seems the locals respect the park. There are signs asking people to please not feed the ducks bread. The sign clearly states bread has little to no nutritional value for the birds.
The heat did slow us down a little bit so after a while we walked around to Main Street and stopped at Kelani for some frozen yogurt. The sun was starting to set by the time we finished, and we began our way back to River Road Park where our cars were parked, but not before I took at least a hundred more photos.
