‘Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.’ – Lord Byron
This week has seen us in the Texas. I’m really lucky, as I’ve a few friends here that I’ve managed to touch base with.
Our week started with a few nights stay at Medina Lake – only the lake is gone due to poor irrigation management.
They, also, have a gorgeous river walk
where we had lunch at Boudros Restaurant and a really big, but interesting market place.
There was a lovely Tex/Mex restaurant, near our campground, called La Cabana where 3 of us tried some Margarita’s – one of the local drinks.
Then John and I headed off to visit with my friends. Our first stop was Helen’s, near Kerrville, where we stayed for 4 nights on her ranch with so many gorgeous animals – including 2 Texas Longhorns!
We had lunch with Denise at a stellar restaurant called the ‘Peach Tree Café’.
They have these cute small homes called ‘Sunday Houses’
from when they used to travel in on wagons for church on Sunday – once a week. Plus they still have an old 5’n dime store with some great items at really cheap prices.
Our next day was in Kerrville where they have Stonehenge II and a lovely winery close to town.
Our drive back took us to a few more wine tastings
and L.B. Johnson’s Presidential Ranch – we were lucky to get a private tour at the end of the day.
Happy trails! Who is your favourite American President?
