Lone Star Rally 2013 (Day 4)

This morning we are packing up to head back north.  We have plans to ride to Lockhart, TX. to eat some Barbecue.  As I understand it, Lockhart is known to be the BBQ Capital of Texas.  We have been there a few times, and love Black's.  Our first time there, we ate at Smitty's, and I suggest we go there this time.

Diana, Chris, Doreen & Allen had not been to Smitty's before, and it is just a must!!!  Our ride is uneventful and we make it to Lockhart around 1:30.  We walked right in to the area to get our meat.  The eating area on the other hand was pretty packed.  I suggest if anyone is ever in the area, it is a must see.  The town has a typical Texas town square.  It is worthy of a picture.

We get our stomach's full, and we are back on the road, heading to our destination for the evening of Glen Rose, TX.  Diana has been in contact with our friend Glenda, and she is going to meet us there and have dinner with us.

 About the only exciting thing that happened along the way to Glen Rose was we got on a new stretch of turnpike, and the speed limit was 80mps.  There weren't a lot of cars, and we just sat back and put the bike on cruise and enjoyed the ride.  There was not a lot to look at along the road, but I have to say, those 50 some odd miles went by very quickly.  :)

The sun that we started out with this morning, has continued to stay with us today, but as the day drags on, it seem a lot cooler.  I for one am a bit cold.  The cold front had finally caught up with us.  I was glad when we made it to our stop for the night.

We get to the little No Tell Motel, and the guy can't find our reservations.  We work it out and get our rooms.  They are the old style, park in front of your door ones.  It was no frills, but very clean.  Not long after we get unpacked for the last time of this trip, Glenda shows up.  She had scoped out a few restaurants as she drove through the town.

Mexican food is going to be our food this evening.  Have to say the plates and food were really hot, and they helped warm me up.  We enjoy our visit with Glenda, and head back to the motel.  Cold ride back, but thank goodness it was close!!!

We say our goodbyes to Glenda, and decide it is time to get some rest.  Tomorrow is our final day on the road home.  :(
