Our Awesome Travels

Hey, we met fellow Bloggers today and had an awesome time..

Where are we today ?
         We arrived in Glen Rose almost two weeks ago and been enjoying a nice quiet relaxing time here. From hot weather in the 80s to freezing water lines at night, but this is Texas and that is to be expected.
         Shortly after arriving in town we got a comment from Sharon and Bill (The Odd Essay) welcoming us to Glen Rose. Fellow Bloggers and fulltime Rv'ers, they are staying at their daughter's house in town. Glen Rose is a small town Pop. 2,500, so they can't be too far away. Now over the years we have read each others blogs and seeing as we are so close, I think that we really have to meet these people. 
       So a couple emails, we arranged that they meet us here at Tres Rios and decide on a place to go grab a bite to eat for lunch, get acquainted ya know. They don't eat out much and neither do we so I checked out a few places in town and read reviews, we decided to check out The Green Pickle . The reviews were good and its a local place, (we like local places) if we eat out at all.

       This is not a fancy place but we don't do fancy, cozy is good. I am sure we hit the right spot for a Monday at 12.30 we got the only empty table, its not a big place but sure busy, thats a good sign.
       Well I tell ya these are awesome homemade 8oz burgers, juicy, greasy and messy but oh so tasty. I ordered the Jalapeno Cheesburger loaded with homemade fries, they had the Green Chili burgers and Suzie Grilled chicken sandwich. Yep it was good.

          Ok we sure did have our filling, tasty, greasy burgers dripping, almost need a shower after eating these, but hey, none of us eat much beef and was actually a great experience. Guess the company had something to with that too.
         After a couple hours here we enjoyed a nice narrated tour around Glen Rose and area (in their car) chatting all the time. A few science roads enjoying the drive that took us past Comanche Peak Nuclear power plant here, very interesting. But is a secure area can't get too close.

        We chatted and chatted, about our past and future travels, other blogs that we both read. Suzie and Bill discussed their mutual passion with Genealogy, this conversation could go on forever. But eventually we were taken back home and they headed back on out after too short of a visit.
         So nice to finally meet people that we have read about and chat face to face. As they departed we wished each other safe travels and a good warm winter. I am sure we will run into each other on down the road again. Thanks Bill and Sharon for a great day and a wonderful lunch!
         Back to our house, it is hot, yep we like hot. Full sun about 100 degrees, and inside our house 86 degrees. Perfect we will enjoy it as long as we can. So walkabout a bit and even had time to read for a while too. No need to make supper after a lunch like that, think a bowl of popcorn will hit the spot.
        It was warm enough to sit outside until it got too dark to read, then time to call it a night. Got some blogging to do.
        Hey thanks so much for stopping by and hope maybe we can meet ya'll on down the road too.

    1. It was fun and The Green Pickle a very good, tasty messy burger, worth the visit.

  8. I think a burger that size would take two meals to eat! Your time there is short. Depending on how far you go on your next leg of the journey, you might just start getting into much warmer weather too.

    1. It will get cooler before it gets warmer, but will be fun nonetheless.

  9. Well, if I'd known you were back there taking pictures I'd have slowed down a little ;-) We had a great time meeting you and Suzie.... and I didn't even have to fix dinner as those burgers really were that big! Really, though... I need to learn how to put a link in my blog.

    1. Kinda cool to meet up with Sharon and Bill ,on the road.
      Sure I could cook them on Our Weber, but maybe only about 6 at a time.
      This was a nice treat.
