Austin Fun

I had a great time visiting Austin. I was lucky to be able to stay with my friend LB's sister and her husband. These are some of my favorite pics from the trip...

Post race Diner.

I loved how many of the houses had porch swings. Perfect for sitting out front and watching thunder storms roll through.

More swings!

I loved all the old houses with a variety of architecture and detailed painted trim. The pumpkins on this porch in particular really made it seem like fall even though the weather was shorts-weather.



It's hard to see in this picture, but the rain gutter (left of porch) is actually a chain of connected metal spouts. I have seen these in the Pacific Northwest before and really like them.

And a final swing.
