LOCATION: Housesitting in Fredericksburg, Texas
WEATHER: Still cool (50s) and overcast
We visitied the extremely well-done National Museum of the Pacific- www.pacificwarmuseum.org – in downtown Fredericksburg. Nimitz, who was born here, is featured. He was the Chief Naval Officer during WWII. Very impressive.
Our homeowners had recommended the Fredericksburg Herb Farm, and we decided to check it out for a late lunch. What a cute place! It is a collection of cabins, a spa, gardens, garden shop, bistro, and restaurant. The cabins were built from the German tradition of “Sunday Houses” whereby farmers would have a small cabin in town where they could spend a few days occasionally, and stay there overnight when they came in to town for church. We had a lovely meal – we shared a cup of French onion soup and a mufaletta sandwich. A bottle of local wine, of course, too! Check out photos on their website http://www.fredericksburgherbfarm.com
In the afternoon, we played with the dogs. George worked on income taxes while I did some computer work, looking at places to camp when we finish our assignment here.
DINNER: Fish tacos. I had bought a package of frozen tuna steaks. It seems extravagant, but the package ws $6.00. Two nice steaks. We split one steak, so $1.50 each! I added some grilled onion, jalapenos, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, and cilantro.
