Lazy Day in Austin

We started the day by at a Texas style swimming hole, VERY BIG!   

    Barton Springs Pool is a man-made swimming pool filled by water from Main Barton Spring, the fourth largest spring in Texas. The pool is a popular venue for year-round swimming, as its temperature maintains a narrow range from about 68 °F in the winter to about 71.6 °F in the summer.The kids were starved when we finally left the pool because it was getting too hot. We accidentally happened upon an area of Austin known as SoCo (South Commerce). Like almost everything in Austin the area is full of hipsters and all the great things they bring. In this case it was a little burger joint called hopdoddy burger bar (no it’s not capitalized). We waited in an hour long line but time flu as we perused the menu and chatted with the tie-dye attired Texas hippie host at the door. Sarah got the Nutella-pretzel milkshake he recommended. The Burgers were really good but the fries were better than I have ever had anywhere. I’m not sure what was in those Texas hipster fries but they were fantastic!   


another of the many food businesses in SoCo

 We did some souvenir shopping and strolled 6th Street tonight. There is music coming from every other pub and lots of activity even though it’s just Monday night.
