Local Bus Tour...

Jim and Katie Robirds along with June and I, took a local Charter Bus tour... It was billed as, "Painted Churches of Schulenburg."

We loaded up and left Austin from the South Austin Senior's Center, Manchaca Rd. around 9:00 A.M. on Thursday, March 31, 2011.

The Tour made for very pleasant day viewing a group of small, rural Catholic Church buildings that are meticulously and elaborately painted inside. The artistic work was especially beautiful and on a level one would not normally expect to see in such a rural community.

A sense of nostalgia gripped this former farm boy as our bus wound through the rolling countryside. Viewing the farms and wide range of livestock was pleasant indeed.
