MicroVacay April 2015

We needed to get away. After our best-laid plans to go to Paris for the “paperwork trip” failed, we made plans for another MicroVacay. (If a vacation is a few days, and a mini vacation is a weekend, then we consider a day trip without an overnight stay to be a micro vacation.) We went to […]

MicroVacay 2014

We needed a little getaway, but the calendar gods were not smiling upon us. So, instead of a mini vacation for a night or two, we took a micro vacay just for the day. I picked Colorado Bend State park. It wasn’t too far out for us to miss our obligations, like visiting Mom. I […]

Birthday Bacchanal™ 2012

Emil and several of our #childfree friends have late-November through early-December birthdays: Kelly, Jeff, Emil, Judy, and Ryan. So, we made a huge weekend out of it for all of them. Friday, Jeff, Judy, Emil, and I went for Thai lunch in Cedar Park on our way to Flat Creek Estate winery. We had the […]

MiniVacay to Wimberley Day 3

Day 3 was a relaxing “get back home” day for us. After cleaning up the cabin and packing, we headed back to “town” for lunch. On the way out, Emil drove us over the river so I could grab these pics. We tried the Wimberley Cafe for lunch. Good thing we were leaving because we’d […]

MiniVacay to Wimberley Day 2

Day 2 of our mini-vacay brought us much fun! After a late night of hot tubbing, we slept in. Actually, I slept until about 8am when I could no longer breathe. I blogged and wrote our Yelp reviews from the day before; Emil was up by ~11am. We ventured out to have some lunch. The […]

MiniVacay to Wimberley

Last Spring, on our way home from Canyon Lake, we saw lots of traffic on I-35 (surprise) and chose to take the back roads, instead. We drove through the little town of Wimberley and decided it would be our next destination. We weren’t able to make it to Paris for Thanksgiving this year, so we […]

Memorial Day (weekend) Meandering

Saturday, Emil & I wanted an adventure away from the Memorial Day weekend craziness. So, after lunch at Pita Fusion (OMG was it GOOD!), we drove out to a National Wildlife Refuge near Burnet. Our Journey On the way there, we ventured through some developments with marinas and/or boat docks. In one of them, we […]

Mini-vacay Day Three

On the last day of our Mini-vacay, we were forced to get up early and check out of our cabin so we could make… The morning Gorge tour was a bit early for me: 9am. The people there were clearly more “morning” than I am. But, with the help of caffeine, and after we finished […]
