What a fabulous getaway. Kyle, TX is about 20 miles south of Austin in the hills. It’s quite isolated but “The Inn Above Onion Creek” includes a luxurious spa, gourmet meals, great accommodations, beautiful view and really wonderful people. I had a room in the attic. This is the third time that I have stayed on the third floor with no elevator. I guess I’m just preparing for my hiking experiences. The highlights were twofold. My first delight was a two hour spa treatment that included a full body exfoliation with sugar (not the traditional salt), complete massage and a facial. It was heavenly. The second really special experience was having dinner and breakfast the next day with four wonderful women, all sisters who were on their annual get-together from their homes in Texas and Oklahoma. They were the real Ya Ya Sisterhood. We got to share our similar experiences as they also recently lost their mother. We also got to share that special magical laughter that exists among sisters. This was a rejuvenating body and soul stop on my trip. Oh, and of course I saw a snake in the road. Mom, I hope you weren’t watching.
