Look at your calendar folks, it was this time last year that you were all invited to attend our wedding! Tina and I are very happy with our lives together. To celebrate, and just have a relaxing weekend, we wanted to explore old Fredricksburg, Texas. For a three day weekend we drove across the State with our two puppies; joining us were Phil and Tara. We stayed at Barons Creek Side and it was wonderful. Daniel, the owner, has built a romantic getaway perfect for a weekend trip to Fredricksburg. On the property there are several cabins situated around a babbling brook with ducks. Each cabin has a theme with one or two bedrooms. The property is uniquely decorated with fiberglass cows from Switzerland, Daniel’s homeland and lovingly handpainted. We mostly relaxed for the weekend, took a few trips to main street to visit the shops and enjoy a beer garden or two.
On the way back we did some Geocaching and stumbled onto Sculpture Ranch for Pharoah’s Treasure. There is a huge property out there filled with sculptures some of which are really awesome. See the pictures below. Apparently this painter/sculptor/artist from Italy settled in Texas to make a gallery out in the middle of no where. It feels wired and disjointed to find this in east Texas. Definitely recommend if you’re driving through Johnson City it’s worth the stop.
Here’s a sampling of pics from our trip, but visit our Flickr page to see all of them
