    26. 35. With breakfast under our belts, and Bandera in our rear views, we retraced our steps to the coast. Again, we rode under clouds and in chilly air. We’d had good weather all weekend, dangerous storms having gone around us at night, and the sun having shone on us during the day. We ran into light rain a few miles from home. The clouds in Kerrville had turned into a deluge upon reaching the coast and we rode in as it was pushing into the Gulf. I guess we just live right. The road goes on forever
