Day 15: The Stars at Night Are Big and Bright

Texas Day 3

I’ve been to over 10 Fairfield Inns. I can’t even count the number of times we’ve stayed at the East Greenbush location. Every one of them has a waffle maker. In all those times I’ve never made a waffle. Until today that is.

A quiet day in Austin today. We relaxed in the morning and drove around a bit in the afternoon. We stopped at Via 313 for lunch.

It is a Detroit style pizza joint. It’s been 38 years since I’ve had this style pizza and it was as good as I remembered.

They even had the right kind of pop

Before heading back to the hotel I called Traveler Nell’s bluff about getting a pair of cowboy boots. We stopped at the local Cavendar’s.

Since I’m going to be working on a farm it just made sense that I would have a pair of boots. I didn’t want to go nuts and asked my clerk Kayce to recommend a pair of reasonably priced boots that would be appropriate for working.
