I had the chance to run away for a few days and visit my sister in Austin, Texas. An easy flight. some good food, great pictures and special people, it was a perfect getaway.
My sister and I got to see one the happiest dogs I have ever met at The Barton Springs, he would just enjoy nothing more to swim upstream. To the proud dog owner who asked for pictures, just contact me and I will get you the rest of photographs of your wonderful dog.
The Medallion in the floor at the center of the rotunda, I consider myself a history buff, but I had no idea of the depth of the rich history Texas has. Just reading some the plaques and hearing what my sister has learned, as I walked around the capitol building really gave me an insight into what Texas has been through. Again, just a completely perfect few days, and big thanks to my sister and her husband for being such gracious hosts!
