I’ve been vacationing in the Texas Hill Country for a few days now, and for a city girl, I really like it here. It’s so scenic and lush with greenery, which you don’t get to see much of in the city. My family and I are visiting Canyon Lake, TX, and the surrounding areas: New Braunfels, San Antonio, and the smaller river towns also. Driving through the canyon, we have seen cows, horses and deer all about. Apparently, the deer just run rampant after dark, so night driving can be a challenge.

We have eaten in restaurant chains and “mom and pop” eateries, which I like because they’re cozy, unique. You never know what to expect until you get inside. I think this entire vacation has been that way; we didn’t really know what to  expect from the moment we arrived, but that’s part of the adventure. You go where the road leads you, and remember to be present in the moment. That’s how memories are made.
