I picked her up in San Antonio and had an amazing breakfast at Magnolia Pancake Haus. I had Banana Bread French Toast- banana bread that was then french toasted. It was prreeettty good. Then we headed to Austin. We first checked out Mt Bonnell. It was seriously like 100 degrees the whole weekend we were there. I decided that is should be socially acceptable to walk around in swimsuits when the weather is above 95. Which is basically what we did the next day. Anyways...GREAT views of the city. I just love this place. There is all the city things and some outdoorsy things and its green and hilly.
Then we drove over to the 360 bridge. Hiked up about 5 minutes for some more great views.
Ok, see all those black cloud looking things that look like dementors from Harry Potter (below)? They are bats!! How cool is that?! There was SOOO many!
That night we ate at good old Salt Lick with Erica and her boyfriend Mark.

Then we went to Barton Springs Pool right next door. It's a spring thing thats been turned into a little pool. Fun fact-my something-great grandfather was scalped & killed by indians in this very spot! Poor guy. I should also mention while we were here we felt like we had been transported to the 60's/70's. Very free-spirit-don't shave your armpits-wear-flowers-in-your-hair.
