I woke up to this beautiful view this morning from our window. It looked like a painting.
Our plan today was to drive 65 miles to the little central Texas town of Fredericksburg.
We have been there many times, but we had never been to the Nimitz museum.
Chester Nimitz who commanded the Pacific fleet grew up around Fredericksburg and his father owned the Nimitz Hotel which was built in the shape of a steamboat. Part of the museum is here. There is also another new section, the George H. W.Bush Museum. It is big enough to house airplanes, boats, and other artifacts from World War II. There are video reenactments of Pearl Harbor and the atomic bomb at Hiroshima. It is extremely interesting and definitely worth the trip.
After that, we still had time to make a quick trip to Fredericksburg Winery and then returned home.
