Coming into this trip, I wanted to know more about the history of Texas. We visited the Bullock (no, not Sandra) Texas State History History Museum, which didn't allow photographs. I would definitely recommend it. Additionally we toured the Capitol building. Since everything is bigger in Texas, the building followed suit - it's the biggest Capitol in the nation.
(All door hinges - like that above, and doorknobs were ornate.)
There were several trips to Whole Foods (including the original shown below - it's in a bigger location now, but it's still considered the first store), as I was vacationing with carnivores. I would let them go to their BBQ joints, as long as I could pick up a meal from WF. Of interest: they had a policeman directing traffic for parking, and everyone inside was either a hipster or wearing yoga pants. Nice to know it's the same everywhere. Ha!
Summer Kale Salad from Whole Foods:
Breakfast while at the hotel or when we visited my aunt and uncle in central Texas (that will come in a later post), consisted usually of fruit and toast with jam or pb or both. And coffee.
Tomorrow: Austin Recap (Part Two).
