Been in Austin one week now. It is really nice to just be here and hang out. Almost everyday I ride and check out neighborhoods. Each day is more beautiful than the previous. Does anyone work in Austin? Out in the parks and trails, it doesn't look like it!
Helmet hair and happy, after a 4 hour tour of neighborhoods in Austin. Pretty much what I've been doing here. The cousins are impressed that I have my own spandex rather than handme downs from boyfriends, husbands, sons.
Must have died and gone to heaven. Beautiful day for the Austin Marathon. Started out cool, is sunny and mild, but not hot. Rode my bike from So Austin to the finish of the Marathon on Congress Ave. just below the State Capital. From there through the UT campus and Hyde Park, had a latte at Quack's and saw runners at the furthest point in the Marathon. Once again people and music in the streets.
Let your feet lead you. I drove into NOLA, with vague memories of the Garden District.
I found a nice street, checked lodgings on my Garmin and after 1 failed attempt, found my home away from home. Then I trekked through the District and finally down to the French Quarter. By virtual accident, I am staying at on Magazine Street. Definitely the cool destination in town. In the French Quarter, I had some oysters and a beer and then walked into a free concert by the LA symphonic orchestra in St. Louis' Church on Jackson Square. Hopped a cab back home and am having a hard time leaving!
My cousins and great friends, Rose and Ted at home in River Landing. They have settled into their new home and environs. Trust me, it wouldn't be hard. Lovely couple of days. Enjoyed my time there immensely. *****+Accomodations
Wednesday, Feb 4, Lunch stop, Fredericksburg, VA Baby Eve looks very "hot" in her pink Adidas warm-up. She is most adorable. My nephew really is a DR; saw him at work; his staff loves him and family. Candis is the best new mom! Nice, quick visit to meet Eve. I will volunteer to hold her anytime. Loveya.
