Monday, March 4 – We walked around Bandera, TX, today.

Even though the sign says it and it is written on their website, we cannot find out why Bandera is called the Cowboy Capital of the World.


We enjoyed strolling among the stores looking at the items for sale.

If you visit here, don't miss Back in the Saddle Unique Boutique. What a store. It is packed with just about anything a girl would want. An unique is a perfect word to describe this store.

It really doesn't take long to complete a thorough walk-about of Bandera. Not many interesting shops, mostly touristy stuff and antique stores.


We then drove out to Medina, TX, to visit The Apple Store.

The Apple Store

We were here in 2010. It is known for amazing hamburgers, baked goods, and their patio cafe. We split a hamburger and soft drink, saving our calories for some delicious apple bakery items. The burger was great.

The Store specializes in apple pies. They are HUGE! Each pie contains 5 pounds of apples, and they sell for $24.94 EACH.

The gal at the oven said they make 25-100 pies each day (weekends are especially busy) and ship them all over the United States.

Needless to say, we did not buy a pie. Instead, we purchased an apple and raisin cookie and two apple turnovers. They were delicious.

Sign for the day is for the ladies out there.
