Today I keep thinking of that song by Fountains of Wayne: Seatbacks and Traytables. “An X on the calendar square- new city, same stuff.” I’m starting to feel that I’m moving too fast.
Yesterday I walked the Riverwalk in San Antonio for a while. Absolutely beautiful. No, I didn’t go to the Alamo. But walking back, I noticed that my hotel was @ the crossroads of Houston, Starr and Bowie. And down the street was the Crockett hotel. Yep, that’s Texas.
Then off to Austin. I stopped first @ Wholefoods in the warehouse district. MY GOODNESS. I totally love Austin. I could stay for a few months. I just love the spirit & energy (and music & food) here. This is a Sara-ish sort of place. And it was in the 80’s already. (I do like heat- a lot!) This is one of the places I’d like to re-visit.
So now I’m holed up in my hotel. Did my laundry (I have to say, that was a wonderful thing.) And downloaded some new tunes & burned some CDs. Now I’m packing it all up to head toward Santa Fe. It’ll take 2 days, so I’ll just drive ’til I get tired & then pull in.
Oh, are you keeping up w/my pix?
