I just got back from Austin last night, and I miss it already! Despite the sweltering heat, I love that city all of the time. Great food, great people, and beautiful scenery.
On Sunday, we drove out to Wimberley for my cousin’s wedding. It’s about an hour outside of Austin along Cypress creek. Some of my cousins own a really beautiful piece of land there where my great aunt Sada used to have a sleepaway camp for girls in the forties and fifties. My cousin and her now-husband were married outside under the pavilion, with the creek in the background. It was so pretty! Some of the trees there (like the big cypress on the other side of the river in this picture) are over 1,000 years old.
After the ceremony, we had barbecue from Franklin for lunch. I was really glad to get to try Franklin at the wedding, because unless you order a large amount for a party, you have to wait in line to get served before they run out. The line starts before nine even though they don’t open until eleven. That is too intense for me! I thought the barbecue was very good–we had brisket, sausage, ribs, and pork. I am not sure it was the best barbecue I have ever tasted, but I did enjoy it. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait in line for two hours to get it!
