Austin Day Two

YUMMY! That is my word for Austin! Today we ate at Chuy's on the recommendation of Marilyn, my sweet friend back home, and Sara, my NEW friend who did a great job cutting my hair, and they were right. The food, Tex-Mex, was so delicious! And the Margarita wasn't bad either! Shout out to our Bartender/Waiter, Mike, who gave us some excellent tips on Glacier National Park; he was there for four months! Thanks, Mike!

I thought Florida had hot weather, but Texas ranks right up there! Darn it was so hot today! We did drive to Barton Springs and were amazed at the "pool" there...it isn't a chlorine pool, but an actual spring. Beautiful and it looked refreshing, unfortunately, we didn't have our suits. So, we did the next best thing and headed back to our RV Park and went swimming there...we had the pool to ourselves, so it was even better.

I am very happy with my haircut! It seemed Sara at Aziz did channel Skip and it turned out beautifully! Yeah! I feel so much better! James, um, I mean Grizzly Adams, has decided to keep the hair growing! Yeah! He looks really good!

Tomorrow we head out west. We really hope to hit Carlsbad Caverns, but aren't sure if we will have enough time. We are due in Santa Fe on Thursday, but we will see. Regardless, the next two days will be marathon driving days. God Bless!!


  1. did you stick your toes in the water at Barton Springs? It's something like 50 degrees or colder. oh how I wish I was there! Glad you enjoyed Chuys. Is your RV resort close to any of the places you went? What's the name of it?

  2. It is called Oak River RV Park and it is on the East side of Austin off of MLK Blvd. It only took us about 15 minutes to get to downtown. No toe-tipping...there were TONS of people there but it sure is a beautiful place. Chuy's was amazing! I wish you were here also!! Love you!
