Hill country getaway

On the last weekend of our summer break before I have to go back to work on Monday we took a little trip out to the TX hill country.

Lunch at the root cellar cafe in San Marcos.


Quick visit to the outlet mall, to this place:

a little antique shopping......

some icecream.......


a visit to Stonehenge II in Ingram TX.  This has recently been re-located from the original location.

As well as a replica 2/3 the size of the original Stonehenge, there are 2 replicas of the Easter Island heads too.  Both kids used to be terrified of these when we visited this place when they were toddlers.







Now:


and then:

Here we are in December 2005.....

some visits to state parks....


I saw this place on the highway and I "googled it" to find out it is called the Lighthouse hill ranch, and you can rent it out the "Lighthouse" for $590 a night.


Old courthouse in Blanco, TX.


swimming.....
