Tour Of The Hill Country

Saturday, January 26, 2019

The weatherman had predicted rain today but it was a wonderfully sunny day. Cool early today with a low of 36 but after about 10:00 it was great with just a light jacket in the wind.

For breakfast Ross and Barb took us to Hill Country Cafe, a local legend. It is in the location of the first HEB grocery store. Can’t hardly imagine a HEB in the tiny space. We met some of Ross and Barb’s friends as soon as we walked in the door. It was a quaint little place with very friendly service and good food.

Texas Lion's Club CampAfter breakfast we headed out on a driving tour of part of the hill country. It was a great day for the tour and of course all the time we are visiting with Ross and Barb. We first went out to the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. Ross is president of the Houston Lions chapter. This camp is for special needs children of Texas for summer camp. It is a great campus with all the regular summer camp activities available to the SN kids. They even have an equestrian program. Running deerThere is a great view of the Kerrville valley from the top of the camp. We then drove through another Kerrville subdivision looking at deer and pronghorns before we started our drive to Fredericksburg. It was an interesting drive with several stops. We have decided we will probably go back to Fredericksburg one day during the week when there aren’t so many people downtown.

We did get a good visit at the Wildseed Farms store.

Then to St. Mary’s Catholic church. It’s one of the painted churches  and just beautiful.

Gibson's General StoreAfter returning to Kerrville, we visited Gibson’s General Store. If they don’t have it, you probably don’t need it. Anne did leave with another pair of women’s small work gloves, which are hard to find.

A sampling of their merchandise:

After a nice walk, we returned to Ross’s home for a wonderful salmon dinner prepared by Barb. Wonderful day.
