Bandera, Texas

Today we visited Bandera for Market Days and to watch the Saturday Cowboys on Main Street Shootout.  Bandera is only 25 miles from Kerrville, and is labeled Cowboy Capital of the World!  With a title like that how can anyone resist a visit to Bandera when in the area!  It turns out that Bandera is a small community with a population of a little over 1,200.  There is a very short business strip with a few gift shops and several places offering food and music.  It gave me the impression of being a great place to go with friends in the evening for food, music, and dancing!
This is a small park on Main Street.  The painted mural on the outside of the building has to make it one of the prettiest restrooms anywhere!  The cowgirl by the doorway is part of the painting!  Makes me wish I'd gone inside to see if the inside of the building is as pretty as the outside!
I saw this sign in a gift shop.  Makes you wonder doesn't it?
