Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean this island has shut down for the season. While the tourist season generally runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the weather is pleasant most of the year so you can take advantage of fewer crowds and better rates in the Fall and Spring.
If it seems like we write about the Texas Hill Country a lot, you’re right. That’s not to say that we don’t go other places – we do, and we’ll write about them too. But as Houstonians, going to the Hill Country is a nice change of scenery yet accessible on one tank of gas. If you’re coming from another part of the country, fly into San Antonio and you’ll find Comfort just under an hour’s drive west of town on I-10.
Sunday night on our way home from the Hill Country, I bought a key chain that says “I think I’ll just be happy today!” I wanted to have a reminder that my circumstances don’t necessarily dictate my happiness – I do and each and every day I have to make a conscious decision to be happy and not let what others may think get me down. Easier said than done.
