We went shopping in Gruene which had some very nice decorations up for the season. We ate at the Gristmill, a favorite place in the area.

The Hill Country is a wonderful quiet place to spend a few days. We also shopped at the Christmas art bazaars in Austin and paid a trip to Bourne. Although the weather was a bit cold it only added to our holiday experience.
