Trecera stop, Fredericksburg. When we told our Trini friends that we would be moving to Texas, the essence of Fredericksburg is what I think they all had in minds. This quaint city was rich with aged German architecture, adorable shops and farming. This is what their Subway restaurant looked like… and their Mc Donald’s, DQ, Burger King and Pizza Hut to list a few.
Sadly, that was the only photo I got on Main Street. Our plans to explore were foiled by another Macajuel lunch but this time accompanied by its syndrome, sleep. I’m getting ahead of myself here and into Saturday afternoon. Take one step backward please.
We first arrived in Friztown, as some call it, sometime after 6pm on Friday evening. Rob booked us a cottage for the weekend and I was ecstatic. Staying in a cottage as opposed to a hotel room was the epitome of our stay, in my opinion. It was cute, rustic and cozy! We were miles away from anyone and had our own pet rabbit for the weekend. Little buns or as Rob liked calling him rabes, as in rabies, would come out every morning and evening to snack on greens around the cabin. He seemed to be familiar with people because I got really close and he didn’t seem to mind.
The evening sun cast beautiful shadows and bursts of flare about the compound. It kissed and danced off the edges of flowers and bushes. It was all too magical and I wish the sun didn’t have to call it quits for the day. My photos didn’t do justice to the scene that we marvelled. Being there made me want to be proposed to again!
We ended the evening with a visit to the cinema and saw Spider Man 2. The movie was decent. I’m no #1 fan of the Spidey but this new series has been captivating to say the least.
Driving through the pitch-blackness on our way back to the cabin, we had to be weary of deer. Those dense fur-tails kept darting across the road as our car approached with its beaming headlights. At one point we had to stop completely because a deer froze in it tracks while crossing. Amused we were as the situation reminded us of an inside joke related to the Trini term, “Ah manicou ketch in headlights!”
Photos of cabin and sunset loveliness. Confession: The first three photos were actually taken at sunrise.
