Canyon Lake

I'm hanging out at Canyon Lake this week. I'm currently at the itty-bitty library in Sattler, TX (south of Canyon dam) checking emails. Have my computer but no internet access where I'm staying.

So far I've eaten at the Grist Mill in Gruene, which can't exactly be categorized as a diner, drive-in or dive, but is one of my favorite places to eat (beef tenderloin sandwich with a half-order of onion rings makes me smile everytime), Lucky's and their sister location, Lucky Sailor, right down at the marina. More to come.

Will stay in touch but I'll have to make my formal posts later. The weather is beautiful today, windy as hell but so least it feels like fall. Actually I don't picture hell as being windy...

Blessing - American Legion Hall

Another email I received:

Terry: One place we were introduced to is the American Legion Hall in Blessing, TX, just north of FM 616 and west of Hwy. 35. On Friday & Saturday nights they have some of the best seafood I have ever eaten. The fried shrimp & fried oysters are fantastic. The prices for the food, beer, and cocktails are very reasonable. The most expensive item is the fried flounder, but it is not always available. The price will vary a bit depending on its size. The entire flounder is deep fried and served that way. It is huge and can easily feed 2 or 3 people. I highly recommend this place.

Port A - Marcel's

This was an email I received:

I just noticed your post suggesting a place on Texas Triple D. We'll have to try that place ourselves sometimes. If you're in Port A you might try Marcel's, our favorite. His regular menu includes traditional German dishes, which are okay, and the specials blend Texas fare with Continental style, usually outstandingly good!
