Fredricksburg, Tx

We went to Fredricksburg this past weekend for a wedding of one of the coach's Wendell works with. We had a good time and got to experience a lot of what this town has to offer.

We do miss the hill country. We think about going back but Wendell also wants to go back to Houston some day. The atmosphere is so much more laid back in the hill country.

We left on Friday and stopped off in Round Rock to do some outlet shopping. Got some really good deals on clothing for the both of us. We rolled into Fredricksburg around three and immediately went walking around on Main Street. We stopped in so many stores. We even went into one of the wine shops and sampled some wine. I bought a sweet wine from Wimberely. I am so inept when it comes to wine.

We had German food that night.

Saturday we went to the National Musuem of the Pacific War. That was very interesting. I learned some new stuff. Of course, I have my wonderful history buff with me. There was so much information. You could also see alot of parallels of what happened then to what is going on now. While we were touring the musuem there were a couple of gentlemen that had served in World War II and it was so neat to overhear their experiences. I am so proud of our military and what they have done and sacrificed for our freedom. I get teary just thinking about it.

We did some more shopping and the wedding was early that evening. The reception was at Hondo's where we got to hang out, eat, and dance. They had a local band play in the area outdoors. So I even got to hang outside and listen to music and dance with my wonderful dance partner.

Did not take any pictures. But I will when we go to San Francisco. I promise!

I was reading your posts and not only knew exactly where you were in San Fran, I knew where you were in Fredericksburg, TX. We drove through there a few years ago...staying in Round Rock ourselves!

What a small world!
