BOERNE, TEXAS

Saturday, March 2 – We were off early this morning for a BIG DAY touring this part of Hill Country. Our first stop was the town of Boerne (pronounce BER-nee). We visited the town back in 2010. Not much has changed since then. It is a very quaint little town. The town's first settlers were German. The name Boerne is in honor of Ludwig Börne, a German poet and publicist. Ironically, Mr. Börne never visited the town that was named after him.

We strolled main street doing some window shopping and stopped in a number of the small shops to look around. Our only purchase was a jar of pickles......yep, pickles!

A visitor can rent any of the small buildings out back for their night's stay. The church and schoolhouse both can be rented. They contain several bedrooms.

Lots of interesting items can be purchased in the small town.

If only our truck were bigger.

We bought a jar of pickles from The Pickle Place last time we were here. They are delicious. We had to go back and buy another jar. They are called Fickle Pickles…sweet, crunchy, spicy…yummy!

If you visit Hill Country, don't miss this delightful town. More of our day in tomorrow's blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y'all back real soon. Have a great day!

  1. I don't think the neighbors back in Ohio would like to see that in your front yard. Of course your answer would be that everything is bigger in Texas. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. I think you ought to go back and buy a few of those roosters. I'm sure you could find a place to attach on your ladder or even on the roof. Red neck would have a whole new meaning.

  3. Mmmm, those pickles sound good...and I love the name! I'm guessing it's too early for the Bluebonnets, right? That rooster really would have made a statement in your front yard! LOL

  4. Remeasure, I think the chicken would fit right on top the truck, a little duct tape and away you go. Of course, you might be mistaken for a Popeye's delivery truck.

  7. Great photos of all those old buildings in town.

    Sure glad Paulette isn't there to see that Rooster or I'd be building a second story on our 5'er to haul it home - I'm not kidding!!
