If your Spanish is at least so-so, or if you’re familiar with the correct pronunciation of a certain West Texas winery, you will catch the muy clever title.   It would sound like “YahNo What I’m talking about?”  And, I’m talking about Llano—another pearl in the Texas Hill Country.  It’s a little town on the YahNo River that most people associate with a very famous bar-b-que place or if you’re a hunter, you know it as “the deer capital of the world“.  But, if you’ve been to Llano recently, I’m sure you’ve noticed a new little umph—a little more pizazz.  I’ve always thought the berg had great bones—wonderful old buildings around a picturesque square with a court house which easily could be a backdrop for a movie……Now, there’s a reason to stop, park on the square, and walk around.  Denny and I did that a few days ago.  It was almost closing time and we had to play beat the clock because we were meeting friends at Badu 1891.  So this day would be like a Grey Line Tour—hit the highlights and definitely return for a longer length of time and bring girlfriends to shop, have lunch and look at the wonderful old homes sprinkled around the town that are begging to be loved and rejuvenated……..Llano is like a lucious fruit on a tree that is ripening right before our very eyes–ready to be picked and enjoyed.  It’s going to be a great new place to be—for the day, a weekend, or longer! I really think it’s one of the last spots in the hill country that’ll you’ll be able to say, “I remember Llano when ………….”  But, you better hurry……..Austin is getting closer and closer!   Do put it on your Texas Hill Country Bucket List and click here for upcoming events.
