December 2008 - Kerrville and Fredericksburg, TX

Coming through west Texas we saw windmill farm after windmill farm as we traveled I-10. You can see a small section of these farms on the 2nd and 3rd photos.

Hello from the Texas German country! We stopped a few days in Kerrville, TX to see the sights in the Texas Hill Country. It is the fault of my nephew's wife, Deirdre! They live in Austin, TX when they aren't in Singapore. They keep telling us the Hill Country is so beautiful - You know what, they are right! A year or two ago at Christmas, they sent us several sauces from a place in Fredericksburg, TX. We just loved the Raspberry Chipolte Sauce. We had to go see where it was made. Along the way, we discovered LBJ's Texas White House and thought we'd stop and see his ranch, too. The big oak tree was where major deals were struck by LBJ. We also discovered Opa's Smoked Meats in Fredericksburg. Opa is German for grandpa which is what we called Doug's dad and his mom was Oma when the grand kids came along. We felt like we were back in Lebanon, PA! Of course, along with the German foods there is always the requisite jalapenos!
