You know we have a group of friends who take what we call our “Spring Break Trip.” I’ve posted about these trips before to: New Orleans, Salado, Granbury, Galveston, and Fredericksburg to name a few. Mostly we stay in Texas, though we have traveled to Branson, MO and Hot Springs, AR.
So, the last several days of April we traveled to the small town of Wimberley, Texas, an artsy kind of place with great shopping and beautiful scenery. This particular weekend, we experience perfect sunny weather with highs in the high 70s to low 80s and light breezes. It truly was excellent. (Guess it was making up for the weather we’ve had since then: severe weather, tornado warnings, high winds, and gully washer rain. Not at all fun.)
Each year a different couple picks the place. Unfortunately, the couple who did this year had health issues and were unable to attend. We stayed at the Creekhaven Inn and Spa in the most idyllic location. (This from someone who lives on a lake!) Lovely terraces, stone paths, lots of greenery, lots of gathering places, hammocks, comfy chairs, and the babbling Cypress Creek running along the property. Check out their website: http:www.creekhaveninn.com
Rooms were comfy and accessible, important for some in our group. It is a B & B and Spa. Several got massages. One afternoon, free chair massages were offered. And did I mention the cookies? The cook called Bob the Cookie Monster. He always seemed to show up just when the fresh chocolate chip cookies came out of the oven. I failed to take pictures of the breakfasts, but they were all excellent.
Lots of places to eat in Wimberly. My favorite is the Leaning Pear. I had one of the best crab cakes I’ve had anywhere. Again, forgot to take a pic. ☹
We happened to be in town the weekend when they were having a butterfly release and an art festival. By the time we’d done the butterfly thing and enjoyed BBQ for lunch we skipped out on the art festival and went back to our lovely accommodations to chill. Sitting by the creek in the breeze dozing is an exceptional way to spend an afternoon.
Butterflies loved the cantelope and just lit on the fruit or your hand.
While there are many wineries in the area, we didn’t make it to a one. Guess we’ll have to do that on another trip. (I’m not saying we didn’t drink a little wine, just didn’t make it to the wineries. 🙂 )
Funny sign outside one of the eateries. Made me chuckle.
So, if you’re ever in the Texas Hill Country, I strongly recommend you check out the Creekhaven Inn & Spa.
If the weather cooperates, I’ll be in Wichita Falls, TX Saturday afternoon, May 4 at the 8th Street Café from 2-4 selling and signing books. Come see me. 😊
