My GF’s and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing and fun weekend to the hill country.
Destination… Wimberley, Texas.
I have always loved this small town with all it’s character, charm and beautiful scenery and it had been many years (too long), since I had been there.
The weather was perfect, the place we stayed at was perfect and the scenery…well, PERFECT!
If you are planning a trip there soon, here are some very good recommendations for “must do” and “must eat” places.

Lunched at the Leaning Pear (my pick…the Texas Pecan Black Currant Tuna Sand w/Mushroom Soup combo)…delish!!! Had a great time catching up!
Day of shopping (even went into a shop where the lady asked us if we were from ___. Yes we answered and she said, I thought so, I used to live there and remember you. Wow! None of us knew her. Purchases: some beautiful silver bracelets for myself & Sweets!
Drive to the scenic “Devils Backbone” (thanks Lisa P.)!
Dinner at Milagro’s TexMex where we shared an order of “fried avocado slices” YUM!!!
Home to our Adobe abode for more visiting, exchanging of gifts and dessert!
Breakfast at the Wimberley Cafe where my pick was a delicious Garden Omelotte
First stop: Wimberley Glassworks for a tour, sightseeing and some humor from Tim deJong the master gaffer (highly recommend). Bought me an awsome paperweight!
Then off to Texas’ first and only Olive Farm—-Bella Vista Ranch (so educational, fun and amazing)! Purchases: olive oil (of course), Red Onion and Fig Tapenade and some wonderfully aged Balsamic Vinegar!
Headed to San Marcos for some more shopping (great little shop), Two P’s Boutique
Linner (late lunch/almost dinner) at the Cool Mint Cafe (also delicious)!!!

Head into town for brunch at a hidden gem… Kate’s Place (AMAZING! Recommended by a local and glad he did). I feasted on the fresh tomato and basil quiche—to die for!
