Continuing On

Day 2

After breakfast we started out for a day of sight seeing. First we had to stop at a wool shop that I heard about the day before. I bought some real yummy wool pieces, of which I will use some on the Tisket a Tasket Blocks that Bunny Hill is offering.

We then traveled from Fredericksburg to Kerrville. At Kerrville we picked up a highway going west, headed to the town of Leaky the scenery was beautiful. I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked as I was driving the entire trip. And unfortunately, the pictures cannot show the beauty of the scenery along this road following the Guadalupe River. You also drive through the Lost Maples State Natural Area, which is a great area to visit in the fall of the year.

When we arrived in Leaky it was time for lunch. We found this restaurant where we could eat on the patio. The food was very good and the setting was likewise very nice. Even though the temperatures rose to the high 90's it was cool with a slight breeze when you were in the shade.

After leaving Leaky we traveled on to Medina and Bandera onto Kerrville, where we stopped at Creations for me to do some stash enhancement.

When we arrived back in Fredericksburg we ate dinner at the Fredericksburg Brewery where we had German sausage, cheese and wonderful crispy onion rings along with one of their beers. We were stuffed and opted to take the Apple Strudel back to the hotel.

That's it for today as I need to get off this computer and clean up my desk, which is stacked sky high. More tomorrow about our trip home and the LBJ ranch.
