North to Austin or rather the west side of Austin near Lakeway & Lake Travis. We are at the La Hacienda RV Park on Hudson Bend Rd. Judy (Patti's sister) is temporarily staying with her daughter, Kris, & grandson, Dillon in Lakeway. Judy is moving in a week or so to Lubbock. This is a great opportunity for us to visit with them. This is our first trip to Austin in an RV, & it has been about 12 years or so since we were last here.

We had a great time here in Austin. We have dined, toured, etc. We toured the state capitol building which is really interesting & also went to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, plus some other stuff. A beautiful, fun place to come. Unfortunately the spring flowers are just beginning, but we did see (thanks to Judy spotting it) one Bluebonnet.
