Texas Travel

You may remember, I mentioned in an earlier post that AJ and I plan to travel with GJ while he attends business meetings in several different locations this summer.
We just returned from Austin, Texas and the Texas Hill Country.
We have traveled to this area of Texas several times.
If you read my posts over the next few days, you will notice we enjoyed a bunch of scrumptious meals as we  "ate our way" across the Hill Country of Texas during this trip.  

Sunday morning we departed Austin and drove to Fredericksburg, TX then ten miles beyond to one of our favorite restaurants, the Hill Top Cafe.  This former gas station on the side of the road is a fun restaurant with fantastic food.   We planned our visit to arrive in time for the Sunday brunch. 
Dessert above is a homemade blackberry-peach pie.  The fruit was grown "next door" to the restaurant. 
After brunch, as temperatures reached the upper 90's, we walked along Frederickburg's Main Street and visited several of the quaint shops.  
  
Then on to our next destination for the afternoon, Luckenbach, Texas. 
Although "Waylon and Willie and the boys" weren't there, you can always find action the general store, live music, and lot of interesting people watching.

AJ enjoyed having his photo made on the Long Horn, music, eating a funnel cake and shopping for a cowboy hat. 

More Texas adventures to come... including afternoon tea.

Oh, Linda, it's so wonderful that you and your son are able to accompanpy your husband on these trips. We have such a beautiful country, and it's a blessing to be able to see so much of it.

Next time you are in Austin visit the Tea Embassy. It is a great Victorian house where they sell great tea and gifts. Not a tearoom, but they do have special events often. The Hill Top Cafe looks like a place I visited with one of the owners of the Tea Embassy, Carol Sims. That pie looks sooooo very good.
