Needless to say, it’s been more than a couple of days since I wrote anything here. We flew to Austin, TX over the weekend to watch my niece get married. Such a beautiful event. The weather was a bit wet, but we managed. I was very glad to get back to drier air as the heat and humidity were very hard on my breathing.
My niece made a beautiful bride and her new husband is super nice. He treats her like a queen, which makes her family very happy!
We arrived at midnight–UGH–I’ll be going direct in the future, and in the daylight. This is the terminal there at Austin.
The first day, we met up with my nephew Kenneth and his wife, Amy, and my niece, Jeanette, and younger son, Richard. It seems Texans like their BBQ. I never saw so many BBQ and Mexican restaurants in one place in my life — well, except for the last time I was in Texas! That night, we went to “The Oasis” a restaurant by Lake Travis with an utterly breathtaking view. They had a custom there to clap when the sun set. No problem there…
The actual wedding was held at a place called Star Hill Ranch. It had a number of old houses that had been moved onto the property.
We stayed in Austin an extra day in order to take in the George W. Bush Library in College Station, TX.
The library had an exhibit called Leonardo Da Vinci’s Machines in Motion, one of the machines sits between the two pillars to the left of the entrance.
It’s always good to go places, but I think it’s even better to return to the comfort of your own home. Back into our routines… Be safe and please be happy. Tell those you love that you love them.
