I just spent five wonderful days with these lovely women. They are two of the most important women in my life! BFFs!! That's Cathy in blue, Helen in red, and me in white. (No, we didn't choose a patriotic color palette on purpose!) We hadn't been together for at least five years and yet it was like I had just seen them yesterday! I think that's one of the identifiers of good friends. Don't we look happy?
We were happy! We talked, we ate, we laughed, we shopped, we laughed, we cried, we sang and sang, and oh, did I tell you we laughed!!! We had the best time! It was great.
The resort we stayed in was very nice with all sorts of activities and things to do....tennis, mini-golf, both indoor and outdoor pools, shuffleboard, ping pong, arcade games, even horseback riding was available. We didn't do any of it!! We were too busy talking and laughing.
We had a small townhouse with a lovely balcony over-looking the lake. The weather was lovely (especially the first couple of days), so we sat outside and enjoyed the view and each other. We had to park a bit too far away from our unit, and had to carry our things up a small hill and a couple of flights of stairs, but it was a small price to pay. Everything else was great.
Texas seems to have a large number of old, small towns, which cater to antiques, vintage everything from books to jewelry, crafts....a shopper's dream. We visited Wimberly and Gruene (pronounced green, don't ask me why!) and we did our part to support their local economies! I ended up bringing home a lovely bud vase that was on sale for half-price! I just couldn't resist. Cath and Helen each found treasures of their own.
We managed to find nice restaurants and never had a bad experience or a bad meal. One of them them was an outdoor Tex-Mex restaurant called Milagros. We couldn't resist taking advantage of the photo op:

"Memories are Made of This" - Absolutely!! We hope to do it again one day. Do you think next week would be too soon?
