Texas Olive Oil Company

I am still traveling. Yesterday my Dad and I visited an olive orchard and experienced an "olive oil tasting". The hill country here in Texas is sprinkled with several wineries and tasting rooms, however it boasts only one olive orchard. Jack Dougherty owns The First Texas Olive Oil Company and you can find out more about this wonderful little business at his website.

Today it is raining, and we ventured out earlier for a little shopping in Fredericksburg. This little tourist town is abundant with little antique shops and sweet stuff for the ladies. Most of the offerings are not my style, but I did discover a way-cool doggy boutique called Dogology. They have tons of groovy stuff for dogs & their humans. The decor was totally urban modern and it was wonderfully out of place in this quaint little country town, where western shirts and cowboy motifs dominate.
