Becker Vineyards – Fredericksburg, TX

IMG_3303The rain in Texas was daunting at times to say the least. No matter, we were determined to make the best of our visit to the Hill Country.  As Saturday dawned clear and sunny, we knew it was time to get out and visit the area and we knew right where we were headed – Becker Vineyards Lavender Festival.

Cranky Franks BBQ – Fredericksburg, TX

20150505_134200In the middle of the Texas hill country in German Fredericksburg, you can’t get much more German. We were searching for good German food which eluded us (maybe three years in Germany had something to do with not finding what we were looking for). But take heart, this was Texas.

Another Town – Another Bike Trail, Georgetown, TX

IMG_2938One of the joys full time RVing affords us is the opportunity to ride our bikes on a pretty regular basis, at least around a campground. Hailing from South Louisiana a hill for us is pretty much considered flat ground elsewhere. That means hills to others are akin to mountains for us. Continue reading
