Apr 20, 2010 - Fredericksburg

Hello again, We have moved to Fredericksburg for a week before heading to Dallas. We are at the peak season of the Texas Wildflowers and they are incredidable. I bought a new computer and do not have everything uploaded yet so I will just put some awesome pictures up that we have seen in our outings the last two days. Fredericksburg is very crowded at this time of the year and you will see why when you look at teh pictures but in spite of all the people, we managed to run into the Wagon Masters from our MOC rally in Kerrville last month....

Apr 17, 2010 - Hill Country of Texas

Vacation 2010-2 April 14, 2010 It is cloudy today as we begin to head west toward the Hill Country. After stopping at Flying J at San Antonio, TX we began to get into some rolling hills which is the beginning of the Texas Hill Country. As we motored along we saw not only cattle but also sheep and goat herds along the road. We arrived at Oakwood RV Resort. It is old but well kept. The sights are narrow as when one puts out a slide it hangs about a foot over into the next sites patio. Just as we got settled in it started to rain. April...

Apr 10, 2010 - ENCHANTED ROCK

While in a shop on Frederickersburg, a shop owner suggested we drive about 20 miles north of Fredericksburg to Enchanted Rock National Park. So Saturday morning that's just what we did. And boy, were we glad we took her suggestion. A beautiful area! Enchanted Rock State Natural Area consists of 1643.5 acres on Big Sandy Creek, north of Fredericksburg, on the border between Gillespie and Llano Counties. It was acquired by warranty deed in 1978 by the Nature Conservancy of Texas, Inc., from the Moss family. The state acquired it in 1984,...

Apr 10, 2010 - Fredericksburg TX and Wildflowers

Friday Ed had a couple of conference calls so we got a late start to Fredericksburg, about 30 miles west of Johnson City. We had planned to stay there, but all the RV Parks were full. This is Bluebonnet time of the year as well as other wildflowers. Johnson City was as close as we could stay. Fredericksburg was a German settlement and is quite a downtown shopping area, about 3 blocks of Main Street. We spent a couple of hours looking a local shops before going to Wildseed Farms. Wildseed Farms is a very colorful place! As the name...

Apr 9, 2010 - Another Enchanting Day in Central Texas

Today Cousin Lullene Knox from the Huntsville area came by to get me. She had arrived yesterday too late to get together then. We went to Fredericksburg, arriving in time for lunch with other cousins, Dick and Maxie Hoester and their son, Rick. We met them at Dick and Rick's law office and we all rode together in their car to the Peach Tree Restaurant. We had a very nice visit. Lullene and Maxie are first cousins and I am a distant fourth cousin to them. More important to me than the fact that we all are twigs on the same big family tree...

Apr 8, 2010 - (Willie Nelson) "ON THE ROAD AGAIN" & NIMITZ MUSEUM

Writing from Oakwood RV Resort, Fredericksburg, TX Well, Wednesday was a bitter/sweet morning leaving our great friends from the Valley. Plenty of hugs and tears to go around. But our line is "Good Lord willin' and creek don't rise" we'll all be back next season! Goodbye dear friends, we already miss you. We drove north most of the day and got to Fredericksburg around 4:00. Great area. We're in the "Texas Hill Country". The wild flowers blooming are unbelievable! Our friends Bob & Barb (Nebraska) suggested we take a scenic route and they...

Apr 7, 2010 - Herb Farm and Luckenbach, TX

Today is our last day in Fredericksburg and we have had a wonderful time here. We had a long list of things to see and do and I think we accomplished most of them. The Park we stayed in was great too. We especially enjoyed meeting new friends and we hope to see them again somewhere down the road. It was in the low 40's when we woke up this morning but the forecasters promised mid-70's by afternoon and we decided to make our first adventure, a trip to the Fredericksburg Herb Farm. It was a fascinating place with herb gardens, a gift shop and...

Apr 6, 2010 - Wildseed Farm and LBJ Ranch

We woke up this morning to a beautiful day. The temps didn't get below 65 all night and it promised to be a warm, sunny day. This was the kind of day we thought would be perfect for the Wildseed Farm and the LBJ Ranch tour. First things first, we showered, had breakfast and took Heidi for a nice long walk in anticipation of her spending a long day in the RV. We left the RV Park around 9:30 and drove the short distance to the Wildseed Farm. They claim to be the largest working wildflower farm in the nation and they have acres of wildflowers...

Apr 5, 2010 - Nimitz Museum

It was misting rain this morning when we woke up. It looked as though it would be short-lived, however, and we hoped it would clear up a little later. After showers and breakfast, we went downtown to tour the Nimitz Museum. It is a huge complex and it is all about the Pacific War (World War II). Each room had memorabilia beginning with the seeds of conflict before the war, the shock of Pearl Harbor, all the major battlefields and, of course, the Victory. Some of the rooms had actual Jeeps and small planes that were used in the war. One...

Apr 4, 2010 - Happy Easter!

We were up early this morning so we would have time to get ready for Easter Mass. We went to St. Mary's Catholic Church in Fredericksburg. The church was built in the early 1900's and it is just beautiful. I had taken some pictures the day before and I'll post them on today's blog. It's not a very large church, but of course, it was filled to the brim on Easter Sunday. As we were sitting in the pew before Mass began, a couple from the RV Park (Jane and Don) came and sat next to us. We had met them briefly before but hadn't had a chance to...

Apr 3, 2010 - Picnic Amongst The Blue Bonnets

This morning when we woke up it was 39 degrees. Brrrrrrrrr. The weather forecast was for 84 by this afternoon so I sure hope they are right. The sun was shining so we decided it would be a great day to pack a picnic lunch and go searching for blue bonnets. Roger went up to the office to ask directions and they gave him a county map and marked where to go for the best showings. We put our lunches in the cooler, packed up Heidi and all what she needed and we hopped in the truck, ready to go. The map was invaluable and we made it to the Willow...

Apr 2, 2010 - Downtown

There was a light rain falling this morning when we woke up so we were in no big hurry to get going for the day. It finally cleared up just before noon so we decided to go to downtown Fredericksburg and look around for a while. We found a place to park and started walking There are a multitude of little shops and restaurants and we had a marvelous time looking at everything. Of course, all that shopping made us hungry and thirsty and we couldn't resist an early dinner at the Fredericksburg Brewery. I ordered a rueben sandwich and some...
