After dropping the kiddos at the airport, we stopped for breakfast and then headed to Fredericksburg. It was only 7 a.m. when we arrived and still dark. We parked the car in the H.E.B. parking lot and slept (remember we got up at 2 a.m.) until 8 a.m.
Our first stop was Willow City Loop (best place to go at peak season - well except for the traffic jams on this loop). Today, only one car besides ours was on this road and he lived in the area. Told us we shouldn't be there - private road. Fortunately, we had taken the best photos and politely went on our merry way.
Not much happening on 16 from Willow City Loop to Burnet and then 281 to Marble Falls. In Marble Falls, we stopped at the famous Bluebonnet Cafe for lunch and just a tiny bite (right!) of one of their pies. After lunch (at Karen's suggestion) we found a field of bluebonnets!
It's only going to get better! Hope everyone has an opportunity to check them out this year.
