Zilker Park, The Trailer Shop Picnic and Barton Springs

May 28, 2017

The plan was to take the little train around Zilker Park  – but we ended up going up (and down) the Colorado river by canoe.

The Barton Springs Trailer Shops are highly recommended for lunch. Pepperoni pizza with real strawberry ice pops for us, kebabs and wraps for Grandpa John and Papi and an organic grilled vegetable, arugula and goats cheese salad for Mum – everyone was happy!

Barton Springs is also highly recommended but comes with a warning – that water is FREEZING!!!!!

State Capitol and Salt Lick

May 27, 2017

Yep – we’re in Austin! We had a fantastic morning checking out the State Capitol Building. We even sat in on the House of Representatives for a while, hung out with some State Troopers and learned all about being a cowboy in the late 1800s.

Afterwards we headed to Round Rock and had lunch at the famous Salt Lick BBQ.
