yesterday, we blew the popsicle stand for a fredericksburg scouting trip. we headed south on 290. i drank lots of blue sky lemon lime diet soda. we laughed a lot. along the way, several wineries were made note of, rainwater collection system ideas shared, and i definitively decided that i will own baby goats instead of children.
once in fredericksburg, the handsome man and i dropped into the visitors center to load up on brochures and plan future trips. (glen rose, texas, hello?!) there was the national museum of the pacific war, main street, i had my first wine tasting, and spotted loads of texas women in floral prints with faces made up like clowns. after finding ourselves literally lost in the christmas store for a spell, we walked back towards the car and a pleasant restaurant for dinner.
we liked the german stone buildings and the messina hof pinot grigio.
