All is right in the little town of Gruene, Tx (pronounced "green", like the color). Yesterday was a marketday in Gruene and it happened to coincide with a perfectly beautiful day here in Central Texas. It's not too far south from Austin, it takes just short of an hour to get there. Forty-five to fifty minutes, maybe. We're resolved to take more daytrips this year. We've just about turned into two middle-aged shut-ins. There's no excuse. Oh, we make excuses (dogs, garden, errands, chickens, car worries) but really, there's none to be had.
One of the great things about getting the new camera is that it has motivated us to get out so that I can experiment with it. I read quite a bit of the Canon G15 book on Saturday, so by Sunday I was ready to snap the shutter. Here are a few shots from Gruene:

It was a beautiful day. On the way home we stopped at the outlet mall and Michael picked up a couple of pairs of Van's. He almost took home a pair of running shoes as well but had second thoughts. Before we knew it, everything closed. It was 7 p.m. already.
We're already planning our next outing. I don't know where we'll go. The Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour is right around the corner so we might just stay in town for that. It's the time of year for all sorts of events and activity. You don't have to travel far to find fun around here!
