Fredericksburg, day 3

On our last morning in the guesthouse, we were greeted by the owner's chickens roaming around the front yard. We knew they had some because they had left a dozen farm fresh eggs from them in the refrigerator for us to take home, but we hadn't seen them yet (only heard the rooster in the mornings).  One of them came up so close to the door I was peeking out of that I thought for a moment he was going to walk right in.
We headed back into town to see the remainder of the Pacific museum (you can't possibly see it all in one day). We mostly had missed the outside courtyard areas, mainly the Memorial Garden and Japanese Garden. The cool thing about your ticket admission is that it's good for two days (since they know you can't see it all at once).
We walked around town for just a little bit, browsing in a few shops before we headed over to the pie shop Nick had discovered on the map the previous night. nick has a thing for cherry pie. We decided that it was only fitting we eat dessert before lunch so he ordered a piece of cherry pie and I got a slice of peanut butter pie. It was delicious, but I'm not sure what else you expect from a pie shop that manages 4" meringues on their pies. Seriously. I was impressed. Because his birthday was also coming up, we bought a whole cherry pie to bring home as an early birthday celebration.
We decided to head to Llano for lunch because we weren't hungry right then, but Cooper's BBQ ended up being so busy that the line was wrapped around the building. Rather than stand in line for an hour waiting for food, we headed then to Marble Falls because it was only 30 miles away. We found a place on the lake called River City Grille and sat on the patio because it was a beautiful day. I had some jumbo shrimp, and they weren't joking around. They were huge and worth every single penny of $19.99. Then it was time to make our way home. Long weekends are never quite long enough.
