Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
I'm back again with another PICTURE HEAVY nonsense post. Our Texas Roadtrip 2015 tour continues. Lol After we left Alpine (click here for the 1st part.) It was raining cats and critters and we decide to stop off in Fredricksburg. I was last here with Vanessa when we took a road trip to Enchanted Rock in October 2013. I blogged a bit about Fredricksburg here too. If you want to read more.
Our hotel (found on Hotwire).
"Fredericksburg was founded in 1846 and named after Prince Frederick of Prussia. Old-time German residents often referred to Fredericksburg as Fritztown, a nickname that is still used in some businesses. The town is also notable as the home of Texas German, a dialect spoken by the first generations of German settlers who initially refused to learn English. Fredericksburg shares many cultural characteristics with New Braunfels, which had been established by Prince Carl of Solms-Braunfels the previous year." - from Wiki
It is a notable tourist area for many Texans.
Herb farms, grape culture, lavender production and wildflower seeds have become burgeoning businesses in Fredericksburg. Combinations of agribusiness with day spas, wedding facilities, or bed and breakfast accommodations is not unusual. There is even a Texas Hill Country Lavender Trail. (wiki)
And lots of shopping...We saw some incredible art, ate some wonderful food and really enjoyed our brief stay.
And this is where my camera, his camera and both our phones died. OMG! I guess we should have charged them up before we set off! Regardless, we had a lovely day/night exploring the area. We then headed to our next stop on our road trip adventure. So more Texas travel post soon.
See you at the airport-
