One of our big nights was at "Enchanted Springs Ranch" for an "authentic" Texas barbecue.
We were met by one of the ranch hands and promptly got our picture opportunity!
This is a real live longhorn, and that's no bull!
I imagine some people have their weddings here!
There were covered wagon rides hitched to a tractor. The driver explained how years ago, the rich ranchers would go on safari in Africa and bring back exotic animals such as elk, African deer and zebras. One brave zebra had to check us out.
I guess the ranch was "cute," but it was on the cheesy side. I am more into authenticity. This was more like a tourist amusement site, with buildings made to resemble an old town.
We had dinner in the barn. They then had a line dancer who was instructing those who were interested. She was quite endowed and every time they had to stomp, "everything" shook! My hubby said "oh, so that is why guys like line dancing!" They also did the Chicken Dance and Macarena. It was "get drunk and dance at a wedding music" as my husband called it. I was not drunk, just cold and not feeling well.
The highlight was when our one little couple, Lloyd and Carole went out on the dance floor. As I told you, Carole has Alzheimer's and went out to the floor with her arms outstretched. Lloyd followed and took his wife where they did a polka! Unfortunately, no one was able to get a picture of that, but it was quite touching.
