Sunday Drive to Fredericksburg and Luckenbach, Texas

We took a Sunday drive (Mar 15)to Fredericksburg which is in the heart of hill country and it was a beautiful country drive. It is hilly but also very treed. Lots of peach trees. The town was teeming with tourists on the sidewalks and browsing the eclectic shops..... this is a favorite place to visit for Texans and it is easy to see why! We love this area and could live here it is so lovely and the climate is great. We took this drive on our way out of town on Tuesday morning just so we could capture the essence of rolling treed hills one more time. There still was lots of people strolling the streets but this is Spring Break for Texas.

We also went to Luckenbach, Tx.....Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson song mentioned "Luckenbach, Texas" and maybe you know it too. Like a lot of songs we know 2 or 3 lines but there are good ones and this the place to sing them!
"Luckenbach is not so much a place but a state of mind." is a Steinbeck quote and it fits. There was a western group on stage a'singin and a"twangin and people a'hangin and too!

There only is a General Store that has a bar, washrooms and a hall for western music and dances but it is an interesting place to visit.
