Off the beaten path at a botanical garden in Texas

We were meandering in the Hill Country of Texas and did what we often do, pulled off in the next small town and went into the library. We found a quiet and comfortable place to sit, a nice big table to work on, power for the laptop, clean bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. This was the […]Read More
