tourists in AustinTourists in Austin. We had so much fun.

Not too sure about the hat driver Steve wanted me to sport while he photographed the four of us.  Joanne (the MOB)  had the idea we should tour the city and it was a wonderful plan!  Thanks for taking the photo, Steve.

duck for branchesI think our tour guide (with the shades) thought I was going to get whacked with a branch.

They instruct you to NOT touch the branch as it might fling back into the next person behind you.

The rain stopped.  We walked down to the yarn store Hill Country Weavers and then walked across the street for lunch.

  1. Great way to see a city. We also have a hop-on-hop-off open top bus and we took the tour about two years ago. I saw parts of Johannesburg that I had never seen before, and I have lived here for almost 30 years. Great photo opportunities from up there too. Thanks for sharing the sights of Austin.

  2. It brought back lots of good memories of our trips to Austin. My favorite food trucks were Torchys and the cupcake truck – looks like you had a great time. Did you buy some cowboy boots?

  3. Thanks for bus tour over view. Such a lovely area- Oct. 2013 we attended an Austin wedding and it was booming.

  4. Steve looks like a real character – great for the tour business. 🙂 Your sock monkey is adorable! Well-worth the Facebook share. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
