Able to sleep in an extra hour, we took full advantage of that. After breakfast with the sun already warm we headed out. Fredericksburg Texas was where we were to meet up with another couple. We were not that far, so it was a nice relaxing ride down more FMs and State highways. Stopping here and there to look at things that interested us. Seeing people out mowing their yards, tending their fields and going about weekday business. We zipped thru their lives as they dotted ours. Seeing things that make me smile are what adds enjoyment to these road trips. Someone had carved a pouncing cat out of a fence post in the middle of no where..a funky eye catcher made from auto rims standing guard at the entrance to a business. Rivers running beneath us as we crossed bridges.
We made it to Fredericksburg by lunch time. Found our way through the masses of tourists for a place to park. A quick phone call and we were soon reunited with our friends from College Station; Leonard and Sue. Lunch and a cool off session at a local German Resturant. Cooling off and catching up were our main concerns at this time. After lunch the guys resigned to us girls for some shopping.
We tripped in and out of several shops, eyeing many wonderful things and discussing where and what you would use them for..then we stumbled into a wonderful antique shop. The displays were amazing, the prices were amazing and we had a great time gleaning ideas from there.
The guys couldn't stand it, they found us and in their little bad boy ways convinced us we needed to get back on the road.
