Road Trip

While we were in San Antonio we took a little road trip to Gruene which (as their website says) is conveniently located between San Antonio and Austin. I love to go there if I am in the area and thought I would share some of my photos with you.

We had lunch at the Gristmill Restaurant which I love. It is situated on the banks of the Guadalupe River and they have several decks for outside dining.



The entrance to the Gristmill Restaurant.


A black squirrel was dining there that day as well.


But my very favorite place to go in Gruene is Buck Pottery.





Here are the beautiful pottery pieces that I have collected from Buck Pottery over the years.





I fell in love with the Texas Mountain Laurel. It is full of beautiful purple blooms that smell like grapes.

So glad you had a great time in Texas! Congratulations to your sister, Col. Sharon! She is beautiful, just like you.

My mother-in-law lives a quarter mile from Gruene. The Gristmill is one of my favorite places to eat, although I haven't been there in about a year! Our family might have to make a visit there soon. I also love Buck Pottery! My MIL has graciously given us a couple of beautiful bowls as gifts from Buck Pottery. Your pieces are gorgeous!

I live in West Texas and when I go down to the Hill Country I also love to go to Buck's Pottery!

I found your blog through the Crazy Love group. Read through your blog and information. I too, want to know a little about the people I'm reading. I've probably spent too many hours at the computer reading blogs since i started about a month ago.

I am a book junkie also. Maybe we'll share some good book titles with each other.

Abundant Blessings,
Trina
