The plan was originally to head to Canyon Lake, but forgot about spring break. Since we did not make reservations, going there for the weekend was out. So we stopped in Brenham instead. And I'm glad we did. It is a small town of about 5000 and we are staying at the Elks Lodge, which is within walking distance from downtown. They have revitalized the downtown area and it is filled with sidewalk cafe, gift shops and mostly antique stores.

We could not get on a tour last Friday, but do have tickets for tomorrow. Blue Bell has always been my favorite ice cream. I like it better even than Ben and Jerry's.
