Wildflowers at Blisswood

Pulitzer Prizewinning Photojournalist Skeeter Hagler is coming to Blisswood this weekend, April 17 – 19, for a photojournalism workshop. The workshop kicks off Friday night with a delicious dinner at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant, where Skeeter will offer opening remarks. Participants will learn what it is like to work as a real photojournalist and carry out an assignment from start to finish: through the shooting, editing, layout, criticism, and printing stages. Skeeter and his knowledgeable staff will work closely with workshop participants, guiding them on how to get the perfect shot, select a few photographs from the hundreds taken, and create a moving visual narrative. By the end of the workshop, students will have developed their eye and honed their skills as a photographer. They will also have a real feel for what it is like to work in the field.

Since the workshop is being held at Blisswood at Lehman Legacy Ranch, why not stay at premier Texas bed and breakfast Blisswood during the workshop? Set on 650 acres of lush Texas land, with many farmhouses and cabins scattered privately among the live oaks, it is the perfect spot to stay while you tap into your creativity. You are welcome to bring your own food and cook for yourself, or enjoy the award-winning cuisine at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant, just down the road; the Almond Crusted Whitefish will undoubtedly inspire a great work of art.

Texas Bed and Breakfast: Houston Rodeo Uncorked

Carol’s at Cat Spring was excited to be participants at the Houston Rodeo Uncorked Best Bites competition. What was even more exciting was that we won Third Place! There were over 60 Houston area restaurants competing, and more than 4,500 wine and food enthusiasts were at the event. Carol’s at Cat Spring was Grand Champion the first year of the event in 2004 and again in 2007. You can see why people love to come to Carol’s and Blisswood for their Texas Weekend Getaway!
