Weekend Antiquing

I woke up on Saturday morning determined to do something, but the problem was, I had no idea what.  I've been spending minimal amounts of time in my hometown since I started university, and even before that, I always had so many obligations that I didn't really spend that much time exploring.  I talked it over with my mom, though, and in the end, we decided to head a short drive out of town to Boerne, which is known for its antique shops.

We walked along a few blocks of Main Street (the Haupestrasse--the town was founded by Germans) and popped in and out of antique shops, which had such a wide variety of things-- 

English blue and white ceramics, fine bone china, and silver flatware, mixed in with dotted glass place settings straight out of the 1950s, quaint baking dishes, and colorful glassware.  

The town was cute and wandering around the shops was actually a lot of fun, in spite of the fact that it was so hot.  If you're ever there, the antique shops are pretty much uniformly the same, and while they were fun, my favorite shop was actually the Boerne Epicure.  They had a great selection of imported foods, and the staff were incredibly friendly.

To end the day, we stopped at a little burger joint called Soda Pops, where they were playing live music and having a hot rod show.  I actually have no idea what that means, other than that it involves old cars, but it was lively, the food was good, and it was fun to relax after an afternoon spent walking around.  We finished off with ice cream, which of course started melting the minute I stepped outside the shop.
It was a terribly fun day which has left me motivated to try and do even more around my hometown before I leave yet again.
