Where I stayed
Austin Lone Star RV Resort
The Capitol of Texas is two blocks from church. Everything about it, the building, the grounds, everything is so Texas- BIG. And beautiful, I might add. Texans are extremely proud of their state. It seems everyone who flies the U.S. flag flies the Lone Star flag. The lone star symbol is entrenched in their architecture, incorporated in their fence designs, everywhere.
Next on the list is the University of Texas, Austin. Home of the Texas Longhorns. Ironically we have not seen an actual live longhorn cow anywhere. The campus is amazingly large measuring .7 by .9 miles and it is located within heart of the city
We opt not to visit the Lady Bird Johns Wildflower center even though it is no more than 15 minutes from our RV park as not much is in bloom this time of year. Shopping for groceries is a better fit this afternoon. HEB market is a large box grocery store chain. HEB is pronounced as individual letters and stands for "Here Everything is Better." It offers a large selection of everything from hardware to cosmetics, small appliances to groceries. While in the market we peruse the fresh meat cases. You know you are in the South when you find boiled crayfish and fresh chicken feet! Yummie!
Once back at the ranch, so to speak, we do a little cleaning followed by the making of plans for our move to San Antonio tomorrow. I have found that some people pronounce San Antonio as San Antonio, and some pronounce it laack as if they had starred in an old western movie- San Antone. No matter how you pronounce it , we are going there tomorrow.
Have a nice one, y'all!
