Saturday, March 2 - Our next stop on Saturday was Kerrville, TX. We really just drove through this town. It's not a touristy town like Bandera and Boerne. We did stop to see the “Coming King” Sculpture Prayer Garden.

This garden is currently under construction. It is being built by donations without any debt or professional fund raising. Over $2,000,000 has been spent so far and another $3,000,000 worth of monumental Christian sculptures have been donated by three international artists. There is a lot of empty space waiting for someone to donate.

The main attraction is a 77' high steel cross high above I-10 called "The Empty Cross."

It's a pretty impressive place and will be amazing when it is finally finished. That may be sometime in the future by the looks of things.

Our last stop of the day was the Copper Cactus.

We stopped at this eclectic little artist shop back in 2010 and Paul wanted to stop again to see the collection of Mexican tin work, pottery, collectables, and art work by the husband & wife owners. We were a little disappointed this time. It was a little low on inventory and just didn't seem the exciting stop we remembered.

We did make a couple of purchases. Marsha picked-up a new Mexican pot for her cactus back home in Ohio. Paul got a deal on a metal cowboy sculpture he intends to tuck somewhere in the backyard at home. No one in the neighborhood will have anything like it.

That was it for our first day of touring Hill Country. We have several more sightseeing days planned, so stop back and check out our adventures.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!
