We toured LBJ's boyhood home. It's hard to wrap my head around the no electricity or running water thing.

From there we drove on to Becker Vineyard:
We did the tasting and the tour. At the end of the tour, they took us down into the cellar. Love that ceiling!
Then we drove onto Fredericksburg where we ate lunch at Hondo's. Yum...good burgers!

Then it was back to the cottage to change and get ready for supper. We decided on Silver Creek on Main. They had live music and we each got a German dish. It was delicious!
Bruce was being silly and making faces.

If you're looking to do a Texas wine tour, Fredericksburg is the place to go. There are numerous vineyards and wineries along HWY 290. Here's a website that has those and then some: http://texaswinetrail.com
