Next, our beautiful bathroom at the lovely Cameron Inn, which sits just behind the bedroom.
This was our favorite winery of the three we visited: Grape Creek. The facilities were gorgeous -- very Tuscan -- and we came back with a couple of really good bottles of wine as well.
And a few of the historical sites of downtown Fredericksburg: the original county courthouse, built in the 1880's, I believe, which now houses the Pioneer Library. And my handsome husband makes friends with a bubbly fountain out front.
And on our way out of town on Sunday, we made the obligatory pilgrimage to one of my favorite Mexican food restaurants anywhere in the world: Mamacitas. Although we were so full after the delicious breakfast we'd been served that morning, that I might have enjoyed it more after a few more hours and a couple more winery visits. Alas, we hadn't the time.
When I am retired or independently wealthy (preferably both) I'd love to buy a cozy little cottage in the Hill Country, maybe even operate my own B&B. I'd eat Mamacita's every Tuesday, fresh blueberry muffins in the morning, open windows all the time and generally revel in a sense of freedom in a beautiful place. That must be what the trillionaires who own their own island in Dubai do. Except maybe they eat blueberry falafel in the morning.
