We decided we would go to Gruene and walk around since Angel, Susan's little dog, was with us. But then we saw a sign for the Schlitterbaun Christmas Shoppe and decided to check it out. Angel was happy to wait for us in the truck since the weather was nice and cool.
,Some of the parking right in front of the Shoppe is reserved for reindeer :).
We walked through the main shoppe out to the patio area first. It's a courtyard surrounded by small shops and boutiques. Nice things but a bit expensive.
Each building is unique. We had the place to ourselves out here.
We also looked through the main shoppe. They have every Christmas decoration you can think of and lots of decorating ideas. Of course, RVers really don't need much to decorate their smaller castles do they?
Next we were off to Gruene. Susan had not been there and I just figured it would be a nice place to walk around. Angel could also walk around with us. This Bed and Breakfast is right across from the big parking lot set behind the buildings. It was cool out but not bad at all walking around. By cool, I mean mid 60s, not exactly northern winter weather but cool for us.
I didn't take a lot of pictures but we stopped and went in to quite a few stores. Angel was so good while I waited outside with her that she usually got invited inside as long as there was no food being served. Winter in central Texas means you still have flowers blooming. Isn't this pretty?
We stopped at the local coffee shop and Susan wanted to see the Pickle Store next door. A whole store, just pickles. The main store is in Boerne and this is the only other place you can get these pickles.
On that note, we made a quick stop at PetSmart and then back to Camping World as it was about 4:30PM. Guess what? They were still just chasing down parts for the work. Susan definitely has more patience than I do.
