However, we did make it to Kerby Lane - a super veg friendly restaurant. I had the Hippie Burger (homemade veggie burger - so good!) and fries.
Back to the tour: we walked down Congress Avenue (from the Capitol Building) and down East 6th Street. I downloaded a walking tour, and read about each building as we went.
A few shots from East 6th:
I had requested to see Town Lake (also known as Lady Bird Lake), so we found parking and did a two mile walk along the trials. Hot, humid, but absolutely gorgeous. I'd go back to Austin just to see it again.
(View from the bridge: people were paddle-boarding, kayaking, boating. . .)
(Below: further down our walk, a view of the city)
The adjacent park was setting up for Blues on the Green, and we would have stayed (we walked around and looked at the vendors - I bought a pressed watermelon water) but already committed ourselves to dance lessons at the Broken Spoke. I now know how to Two-Step - just need to find me a cute cowboy in Colorado, and I can practice all the time. ;)
Tomorrow: day trip to Gruene (pronounced "green", founded by Germans).
