A Little Bit of Heaven…Wimberley
The Texas Hill Country is unique and special, and the Wimberley Valley is nestled right in the heart of it all. Located in the central flyway for migrating birds and sitting atop the Edwards Plateau, where a huge variety of natural fauna can be found, it’s a perfect place for anyone who loves nature. This means Tarzan and Jane naturally…smile.
When we were done visiting Jacob’s Well, (if you missed this post click here.) We headed to the heart of Wimberely Valley…the historic downtown.
This is the first sight you will see as you drive into the village. I said to Tarzan,”This is wild, what is this?” I proceeded to jump out of the car, and asked Tarzan to find us a parking spot.
The camera started clicking away…I wondered off to the left and see this sign that says, “The Secret Entrance!”
Oh boy, I love hidden/secret passages! I sojourned on down the path and look what I found.
INO’z Brew & Chew Restaurant backyard patio deck…who knew? It looked like a very cool place for a drinks,music and some people watching. The patio was shaded and sits on the Cypress Creek. Live Oak trees cover the whole lawn…what a treat in this heat.
I run back to find Tarzan and to tell him about my great find. We returned and had a marvelous time having lunch and having a cocktail to celebrate Tarzan’s birthday.
The service was good and they even have Bocce Ball sets for the competitive at heart. They are also a pet-friendly facility, allowing pets on leashes on the outside deck…big woo hoo.
After our lunch we strolled through the backyard of INO’z and just took in the beautiful peaceful site of the Cypress Creek. Can you tell Tarzan is in his element? He loves loves nature and when he can get around water…well double the smile.
We now had fuel in our tank and was ready to take on the village and see all the quaint stores. Here we have a old fashion gas station, that has been converted into a jewelry store named Calley’s!
I wanted to take a close up of the painted mural that is on the garage door…precious isn’t it? Can you see what it says on the license plate?
Wimberley has been recognized as an attractive tourist destination by such publications as Travel Holiday Magazine who placed it on a list of 2003’s “America’s Ten Best Small Towns.”
There is a saying that goes…
“Put Down That Map…and Get Wonderfully Lost.”
Have you had a chance to get lost lately?
