Bopping around in Burnet

Hubby and I had a mini getaway last Saturday after a fairly full Thursday and Friday.
He wanted me to see the new sign for Highlands up close and personal!  We couldn't talk the two older kids into going,so we jumped in the truck and headed out alone.  We stopped at Whataburger and got lunch, then took it to Highlands to eat al fresco.
 Then we stopped off at our (new) favorite place to watch a sunset - Torr Na Lochs.
It was warm on the patio in full sun, but not terrible.  We watched the owner's Longhorns amble around the stone patio, looking for their evening meal.  I didn't get a pic of that - I was too busy gawping at how HUGE they were.  Our wine lady assured us, they are not tame.
I think the winery closes at 5, but no one seemed to be in a hurry to leave, so we sat until the sun went down.  Then I was the only one who applauded - such an Austin thing to do!
 Next week is the wine pick-up party there, so we will enjoy yet another sunset together, God willing.
On the way home, we stopped at the Christmas Trail of Lights in downtown Burnet.  We were the only ones there - what a change from Austin, where you get to enjoy the trail with 5000 of your closest friends!
They even had something like the Zilker Tree.  Only it was just the two of us and fairly peaceful, even with slight traffic along 29.
Blurry pics notwithstanding, it was a sweet little trail.
Hubby waited patiently for me to come take his hand so we could walk.  It was a sweet end to our little getaway.
