Boerne, Texas is in the Hill Country — drier than the coastal areas, but not quite desert, either. Nevertheless, it’s a good climate for desert plants like cactus. There’s a nice river walk along Cibolo Creek, where the cactus grow like weeds and the water is teeming with perch, bass, turtles, and “quackless” ducks. It’s a good place for a morning walk.
Wheaties would probably disagree, but this morning in Boerne (pronounced “Bernie”), Texas the breakfast of champions is a very enticing pastry tray from Bear Moon Bakery. Scones, muffins, and other delectable trifles, with coffee of course, are perfect choices when you’re getting ready for a morning river tubing adventure.
