More Texas, Lakeway, Corpus Christi

I just noticed that I forgot to take photos in Fredricksburg.. Darn.. oh. well, it is a lovely town with lots of shops. It did not get damaged by the floods. One Art Town in Texas was swept away... very sad.
A lady at an art gallery, told us that Fredricksburg is working together to make it a Tourist city to visit, they want to be number 1 in Texas..  There is an amazing war History Museum  that is well worth the visit, about the back ground of the wars with beautiful  memorials. Bought a little gift at the gallery.

Arrived in Lakeway, Tx.  Did not ask if we could post Gavin's photo on my blog, so you just get this photo of Great Grandpa and Gavin. He is about 2 months old. Beautiful little boy with lots of hair.  Ralph is so good with babies!

 It is a beautiful area, of rolling hills, the lake I showed above, is walking distance. Lots of stores close, and the perfect place to start with a new house, and friendly neighborhood.  The humidity would probably get to a Californian. They have repainted and put in a new wood floor, everything looks beautiful. 
We dropped off the antique chair from our house, and boxes with books on gardening, house decorating and french recipes, along with some french books that I had from my teens.. But then the language does not change.much and Jade loves anything French. Also, missed seeing a blog P.E.O  friend, always tough to connect when we don't know distance and plans.. Have to stay kind of loose.

We had planned to visit the Texas Quilt Museum in Le Grange Texas, but it was closed the days that we were near..  Off to see more Italian Cousins.
Larry and Barbara are planning to leave the end of the week for a cruise to Alaska.. but opened their home to spend the night.. Again chatting most of the time about family.
On the way to their place we did have to turn around once because of a road wash out.. Big spout shooting in the air where the road would be, we turned around and were directed to another road that was open. Seeing lots of goats, white cows, and small ranches.. Near Austin.

Then off again, driving south to Corpus Christi, to see Ralph's other Aunt Lee and her son Orey Jr.. Finally had a meal at a Cracker Barrel Restaurant.  Very good Pork Chop.   Again lots of cars, rushing back and forth, this city is divided down the middle with a freeway. Sunny still, yeah..

Back on the freeways to Houston.. Next, Aunt  and cousins in Louisiana.
