After spending the night in Austin we headed South & West in search of some more good grub. Our chosen destination was the Wimberly Pie Co. but unfortunately it was closed. But in our brief tour of Wimberly, I saw these Texas bricks, laughed, and had to take a picture:
We also found a cool Bonzai exhibit outside of town:
Grant was excited. Mostly because in his inner heart of hearts, he wishes he was Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid...
I never realized that Bonzai trees aren't genetically different than normal trees, they're just kept teeny-tiny.
Now I want to grow a tiny little tree! But considering I'm still working on keeping my tiny green pepper plants alive, I think my hands are plenty full right now :)
So we headed off for The Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood. Unlike the other BBQ joints we visited, Salt Lick is a sit-down restaurant (however informal it may be).
It is also extremely popular. The hostess told us the wait was about 1.5 hours so we bought a fresh squeezed lemonade & settled in. Salt Lick is a BYOB place and people plan for the long wait, bringing drinks, snacks, games, etc. to keep entertained while they wait.
After an hour of waiting Baby T was getting hungry and we still had a few hours drive to our final destination. We checked with the hostess and we still had about an hour left to wait. Blech. So we thanked them for the lemonade (in our hearts), said goodbye to the crowds of people more patient than us, and peaced out.
