Fredericksburg, Texas

Greg found himself without a softball game on Saturday so we decided to take advantage of it and go for a short trip. We headed to Fredericksburg, and the Wild Boar Farm again, to visit with our friends, the Bacons. The weather was quite warm (not raining like last year) and we saw many bikes along the way. We left on Friday after work.
Saturday morning, we headed out in search of adventure. First we went to Luckenbach. Not much there but a post office, dance hall, a few other buildings.
We had lunch in town at a local brewery/restaurant. Later, we found ourselves at Enchanted Rock State Park. This is the "rock".

The Bacons work very hard at their peach orchard/store. We were all able to go to dinner Saturday night, where we had Mexican food and a few margaritas. Upon our return home, we were treated to homemade peach cobbler with homemade peach ice cream. YUM!!!
Sunday morning, we went out to visit the veggie garden. LOTS of veggies about to start producing and to be sold at the Wild Boar store......
The girls on the Gator and Daniel......

We had a great visit and a wonderful time. We arrived back in Robinson late afternoon on Sunday, having come home by way of the back roads in the country.
