And even more rally activities.....

Rellene wasn't with us last year when we visited the Gruene Dance Hall, outside of New Braunfels, TX. So Saturday we decided to take a day trip over and see what was going on.
This is supposed to be the oldest dance hall in Texas, dating from the 1880s.

They still have the original wood floor and it shows. Uneven and rough with nails sticking up makes it really hard to dance on.

But the bar is pretty neat looking. Over the years many famous country western artists have played here and several movies were shot on this location.

On our way out of town we stopped at the Prince Solms Park in downtown New Braunfels. It is on the Comal River and the city recreation department has created this tube chute. Last year no one was using it because it was still pretty cold, but this year the place was crowded.

It really is a neat park and great idea. I wish I could come back and try it this summer.
On Sunday afternoon a group of 13 went on a trail ride.
Here we are waiting for them to get our horses ready.

My horse was Taco.

There were others on the trail beside our group.

We actually took the horses across several creeks.

I guess Max can say he is a real cowboy now!
