What was I thinking…

Apparently not the right thing.  Today, I decided to get out of the house.  Not sure where I wanted to go.  Somewhere, anywhere.  I jumped on the bus and headed to ross, it is such a sunny, pretty day out.  Decide to catch the one going to the far transit station on the south, then ride the one back to the north.  All was going well and the ride was peaceful,until downtown; then the bus fills up with noisy teenagers.   I had forgot that today was the second weekend of ACL fest.  Now I almost to the transit so I can head back north.  I am ready to be home.  Will probably sit outside on the patio and enjoy the rest of my day.  Here’s to a quiet Saturday.

It does tastes like chicken!

That would be alligator.  Today my mom, sister,nephew,and I went downtown 6th street.  We went to The Pecan Street Festival.  It was their first time going, they loved it.  It was also a first for us all to try alligator on a stick, let me tell you; it was delicious, in fact, it tasted like chicken.  Wow! Chicken.  Now I can say I have experienced gator.  The pecan street fest was good as always.  Until the next one in the spring 2016.  Enjoy!

My brain wanders to far away places, sometimes…  So this weekend was a good one, went bus hopping yesterday, meaning I took the bus downtown, and then hopped on another bus to see where it went, before getting back to the starting place, I took two buses that day.  One was the number 3, that took me right in front of The Shake Shack, now I definitely know where to get off at.  This is a place that I want to try out soon.  There were other places that I saw on this route as well, that were need to try food places, so this makes me happy to know which bus to take.

Traveling on the bus made me wonder, there are people who live in a place, but only see certain parts of it, not ever wanting to venture out further than the eye can see, or the mind can think, some only stay in certain areas where they feel safe, some of that feeling I know, but I also like to venture out to see what is exactly out there, and what the city that I live in has to offer.

I guess I am an explorer of some sorts.  Not always wandering off, but always thinking.  Austin is the city I live in, and I want to find out all the nooks and crannies it has to offer.
