The Medina River meandered gracefully. Some children swung from ropes tied to branches, whilst others swam in the cool water in the dappled shade of the trees to cool down from the September heat. Hummingbirds darted colourfully gathering nectar. They would soon head south to warmer climates once the weather changed.
Suddenly, the sound of gunfire pierced the silence, followed by more shots! People were running! Cowboys! It's a shoot-out!
It was just Saturday in downtown Bandera where Cowboys reenact the old west lifestyle on Main Street.
Welcome to “The cowboy capital of the world”! Welcome to Texas!
