Because we were there only one night we didn't have a lot of time to explore, but we did drive around town a little and eat at the local Italian restaurant, Valentino's. We had lasagna and chicken piccata for supper and then we got a pizza to go for our freezer, which we later discovered was great. Kerrville is a very nice town with all the services you could need, many restaurants and a lovely little downtown. Lots of big banks gave me the sense that we were in an area with some money - in contrast to the territory we'd been in for the last week down on the border and in New Mexico.
Early the next morning Kona and I took a walk along the Guadalupe River at sunrise.
There's an old river walk with some impressive masonry walls and stairs.
This little guy harassed us loudly for much of the walk. I guess he wasn't too happy about our being in his territory.
And we got a close up look at this flock of ducks or geese, the like of which I have never seen before. Have you? What do you think they are?
They are not native to the US, or Mexico, but are exotics that have escaped from parks or game farms, or been blown in by hurricanes, and have made themselves at home here on the Guadalupe. It took me quite a bit of research to uncover their identity. See my next post for the answer.
