Steven had to hop on a few planes for work last month, so we made it to Austin Lone Star RV Resort and paid for a full month. It gave us a nice airport for his travels and I could get comfortable in one campground. It was great setting up knowing we didn't have to move for a few weeks. And it gave us time to get mail sent to us, repair a nail in our tire, and get the oil changed on the 4runner.
A month was also enough time to learn where the YMCA with the best exercise classes was located, the best natural foods store, and favorite smoothie spot. Sometimes it is hard to balance real life things with being in "vacation mode" so it felt good to get into a rhythm. While Steven was away I took a cooking class, joined a local painting group for a morning, and took a pilgrimage to Waco, TX to see Magnolia Market and the land of "Fixer Upper". When Steven was around we got to see the turtles at University of Texas, watched the Bats fly out from under the bridge downtown, and ate delicious BBQ at Salt Lick restaurant. We also got to see some friends who have made Austin home.
Austin, we will be back. We didn't much like the tornado warning that we had to deal with, or the horrible traffic. But the people were wonderful, the food was tasty, the beer was delicious, and the quirky atmosphere felt like home.
I hope someone gets why I put a picture of the Tardis next to a photo of our trailer. I think they have many similarities.
