Being a compendium of thoughts as we drive and drive and....
Beautiful weather today. Clear, mostly sunny, high in the 70’s as we transition from the cities of the south to the Texas hill country and then to West Texas.
Breakfast at Nate’s Baked, a funky little local bakery. Left Jeffrey’s lovely, if small, wildflower garden and spent the morning at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, wandering through their gardens. In addition to the flora, the garden had art, both real and augmented reality
Then lunch at the Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, one of the famous BBQ places near Austin. It was very good, but it made us realize that the quality of Q available in Boston has started to approach that of the really well known hotbeds of BBQ.
Our home for the night is a lovely B&B outside Wimberly, where we spent the late afternoon sitting in the sun by the pool. Not a lot of good choices for dinner, but we watched a beautiful sunset from a lovely beer and wine garden overlooking the hillside.
