Subject: Gruene, Texas
A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to attend a mini-reunion of our South American tour this past fall and winter. We stayed in Gruene, Texas at the Gruene Apple Inn (or Gruene Apple Bed and Breakfast). We are from New England and we were pleasantly surprised by this community about 25 minutes north of San Antonio. The town was a mix of antiques, inns, country & western and, to our delight, a Cape Cod village. Some of the art work was superb. We spend about 4 days there, touring the San Antonio area (the botanical gardens are a treat) and the hill country to the north. It was a good take.
