Austin & Round Rock

Austin has been...

Edible (and artery restrictive)...

Salt Lick BBQ (in Round Rock)

Fry Baby's deep fried mac and cheese bites (worth it).

Whataburger's Patty Melt (Monsieur Squirrel's food of choice)


Denny's pancakes with bacon pieces (also worth it)

Magnolia Cafe's gingerbread pancakes.


This kind of heat demanded snowcones from The Frigid Frog.


Beautiful blooms in the very first Whole Foods Market

Cacti in the peaceful Zilker Botanical Garden


Admired uncommon OBJECTS colour co-ordinated vintage store.

Love Inducing...

Can't quite believe I'm about to put these pictures up on the internet...

We shared (I promise I didn't eat the whole thing) the Texas sized donut from Round Rock Donuts (had to be done).  


We also: * wandered down 6th street on Cinco de Mayo and soaked up the atmosphere (including visiting a store purely dedicated to hot sauce) * admired the love that Austinites' have for their pooches * shopped on S. Congress and had iced tea from Jo's and bought candy from Big Top * ate fish tacos and shrimp enchiladas at Guero's * watched the '5 Year Engagement' at Barton Creek Square.

We wish we'd had time to: * have a burger at Fran's  * watch a movie at the Alamo drafthouse cinema eat ice-cream at Amy's. But hopefully we'll be back again one day.

So yes. The holiday so far. I am only eating fruit & veg from now on (I really don't know who I'm trying to kid with that sentence).

I hope everyone enjoyed the bank holiday back in Blighty and that everyone else not from Blighty also had a wonderful weekend. More photos to follow soon (hopefully with less fried food)...

Madame Squirrel.
