Exploring Bastrop

Today's field trip was to Bastrop, Texas only a short drive from Austin. This would not be our first trip to Bastrop, but it was our first on the Riverwalk at Fisherman’s Park located on the Colorado River.

But first on the agenda was a bite to eat. We like to try new places to eat when we are on our day trips so we opted for Maxine's on Main. We had seen it advertised on one of our favorite PBS showsThe Daytripper so we thought we would give it a shot.

Sorry to say Maxine, but we weren't near as impressed as ole' Chet. The food was good but nothing impressionable enough to brag on. We were also surprised our un-generous plates added up to a whopping $30. Maybe this was most surprising because the prices on the menu had obviously not been updated and we weren't even warned the menu prices were not accurate before ordering. I guess it doesn't really matter what we think though. Texas Monthly rated it as one of the best small town cafe's in Texas and the place had a steady stream of customers while we were dining.

After we ate we headed to the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk was a hit for us all.

Here are some pics of our day in Bastrop...

  1. Bastrop is such a different place from when we lived in Austin. There us to be a meat market/BB-Q place on Main St. that still had saw dust on the floors to catch the drippings from the people eating. Thankfully they changed it everyday.
