With very slow internet service I have been remiss in blogging. I decided to just do it anyway without pictures and when I am able I will add another post with pictures. We have been busy seeing things that most people wouldn't find touristy. We have spent several days with Mike and Vickie seeing Whole Foods flagship store in Austin. It was amazing and if anyone reading is a foodie they really need to see this particular store. It is huge with underground parking and special escalators for the grocery carts. I know they have these in other places but the size of the store and the specialty items is unbelievable. We have had lunch at the Gristmill in Gruene Texas which is actually in New Braunfels, Texas now. The Gruene Dance Hall is right in front of the Gristmill and we walked through the Dance Hall and looked at many of the photos of country western stars that have played here. You should see George Strait's early pictures since this is where he got his start. We drove around Texas State campus and finally found the dorm that I lived in 43 years ago. It really is still there but almost hidden by all that has been built around it. Tomorrow we are going to Wimberley to Market Days. It is a huge flea market and Mike and Vickie are volunteers there. I will post again to tell all about that. Glad you came to check on our fun. Thanks for coming.
