Austin, Texas (5/18/17)

Or as it’s often known:

The second full day of my week in south-central Texas I headed north to Austin, only about 20 miles from where I was staying in Buda.  First stop – the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue downtown:

SRV, arguably the most talented blues guitarist of all time, died in a tragic helicopter crash in Wisconsin at the age of 35.  This statue is located on the south shore of Town Lake, across from downtown Austin.

Next stop – the Capitol building (since Austin is the capital of Texas):

And for those of you who shop at Whole Foods, Austin is their headquarters and this is their main store:

And yes, that’s my brown Nissan Altima with “rock-star parking” right in front!
