First Travels of Summer – Fredericksburg, Texas

17 Jun

We spent the weekend in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country, in Fredericksburg, Texas. The trip was mostly about visiting family, but we did manage to slip in some relaxation and sightseeing. We stayed at [Palo Alto Creek Farm](http://www.paloaltocreekfarm.com/), a bed and breakfast just north of town. Getting out of the car, I couldn’t help but inhale the fresh smell of cedar and a nearby fire, as well as warm rain. I guess I have become immune to the not so great smells of Houston! The B&B was wonderful. They left breakfast and seven kinds of fresh fruit in the refrigerator, so we didn’t need to interact with anyone. We drank wine, did some shopping, and found lots of things we’d like to do on our next road trip to the Hill Country.
