Wimberley Texas

The day after Thanksgiving, I went out to Wimberley with my girlfriend’s family, which is a small town about half an hour outside of Austin. I didn’t know what to expect, and was very pleasantly surprised. We started the day the Blue Hole regional park, a nice area with some hiking trails where we successfully found a geocache by a creek. This was one of the toughest ones I’ve done — and I can’t take credit for finding it (I’m not so sure I would have):

We then went to the square, which is filled with lots of artsy stores selling many locally made “things”. I say “things” because while there were plenty of more normal crafty items such as food, pottery, candles, and clothing, there were also some more unusual items which made for a pretty unique local culture. Here are a few highlights:

Afterwards, we drove down the street to the Middleton Brewery, where we all got pints of locally made beer. They don’t post much on their site, but I would first recommend the cream ale:

With the Belgian coming in a close second:
