We started the day with a snack from our food cubbies so we could make it about 11 miles to Comstock. I had called the local hotel in Comstock last night to see if they had a café or convenience store. The gentleman told me the only café didn’t open until 11:00 a.m. but that there was a small store/gas station right across the street from his hotel.
There we met a very friendly lady that owned and ran the store. She said she was open everyday except for Christmas and New Years day. She had a fair selection of items which would hold us until reached our scheduled rest stops and later into Del Rio.
We had a beautiful ride as we approached and crossed the Amistad National Recreation Area. We crossed a long bridge which gave us a great view of the area.
We stayed at the St James Episcopal Church, which was very nice. We went to one of the members house for dinner where we were treated to a great meal. Their house was on the edge of Del Rio and while eating we were entertained by Wild Deer that also found a meal of grass.
This was a short day’s ride which we needed to get ready for two more days of 80 plus miles.
