We love Texas! Saturday we spent the afternoon in a little town called Gruene (pronounced "Green" which is actually what it means in German) which is a historical town full of neat shops, restaurants and scenery. We had talked about going to the Poteet Strawberry Festival, but then decided it might be a bit too pricey, so we headed to Gruene instead. Not much to tell about the actual trip, we didn't buy anything, but did a lot of window shopping instead. We also split the Hill Country Strawberry Shortcake at the Gristmill Restaurant, which was very yummy, and sat on the patio with a beautiful scene overlooking the Guadalupe River. We had perfect weather of about 80 degrees with a cool breeze, and loved the excursion. Here are just a couple pics, so you can get a taste of our Gruene experience.
