Kingsland and Lake LBJ
Today is our first wedding anniversary! To celebrate, we spent the weekend in Kingsland on Lake LBJ at a little cabin at the Antlers Inn.
It looks rustic, but the inside was very sophisticated and clean. It looked like a perfectly restored Hyde Park house from the 1920s, with beautiful wood floors and high ceilings. We also looked inside one of the cabooses, and they are also well restored inside, with lots of wood and a small efficient kitchen. So cute!
They have a peach and pear orchard, and a nature trail.
I saw a fox and a screech owl right by our cabin. The lake was just a few steps away from our cabin. Unfortunately it was not as peaceful as I had hoped– the constant flow of motorboats and jetskis created a constant buzz of engines and a strong wake that made swimming or just sitting by the lake kind of unappealing. We went to Inks Lake State Park to try for a peaceful swim, but it was crowded too. So we enjoyed reading on our porch.
Brian was thrilled that the restaurant next door to the Antlers, the Junction House, was the setting for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It was moved down from Williamson County in the 90s.
Garden update: bordered patch butterflies have all but excluded the queen butterflies from the mistflower patch. Bindweed was taking over my Anacacho orchid tree and weeping cypress. That stuff is nasty!
