Sandy Oaks Olive Tree Orchard
K: Brandon and I love filling our weekends with exciting day trips and fun activities in San Antonio. Especially when we aren’t in a busy season of travel, we try our best to find things that are unique and interesting for a date. Sandy Oaks Orchard lies just outside of the San Antonio city limits and is home to hundreds of olive trees in a beautiful orchard.
B: I had actually been to the orchard before with my family and remembered it being a wonderful experience. Katherine didn’t need any convincing to go, and we arrived at 11:00 AM, just when they opened. Stunning olive trees line the path as you drive in, and the property definitely has that magical quality to it.
My Olive Jumpsuit
Another jumpsuit! Sorry, but I’m on a kick of comfy, effortless jumpsuits lately that will work both now and later. Throw on a denim or suede jacket and you’ve got an easy outfit for fall in the south. I love how this particular jumpsuit feels like pajamas and could easily be worn around the house as well. I scored this on sale for $22 at Old Navy and was reminded of how budget friendly many of their pieces are! In addition to the one that I’m wearing, this one caught my eye and I love the romper/shorts version here. I’m going to start shopping there a bit more for both Brandon and I this year.
B: In addition to checking out all of the olive trees within the orchard, we also ate lunch at the restaurant (had a few servings of the homemade bread and olive oil), and we shopped the small gift shop. Handmade items like soaps, lotions, and of course, oils were just a few of the trinkets being sold. We came home with some rosemary olive soap and full stomachs. If you are in the San Antonio area, definitely reserve a few hours to spend at the orchard. The owner regularly gives tours so that you can walk the property and learn more about the trees themselves.
