This is Texas, aint no other state....

Love barbeque. Love boating. Love music. Love Austin.
Saturday's review:
Last night we feasted on oh-so-lovingingly-prepared barbequed brisket at a place called the Salt Lick. What's more, if the name of the place and the food weren't awesome enough, it was indoor/outdoor and there was music!  Our excitement was diminished a bit as the starving artist for the evening turned out to be more starving than artist.  Unfornutately for him and us, his musical skills left a good bit to be desired. We found ourselves longing for just one more harmonica note. Is three too much to ask for?

Upon wiping our mouths and sighing (like ya do), bellies full, we headed straight to Lake Austin and launched in the dark for an evening boating adventure which concluded with sleeping under the stars in a moonlit cove. It was fantastic! This morning we awoke to two fishermen catching a "biggun" nearby. We waited 'til the sun was up before heading out for the 'first tracks' of wake boarding. I got up on my first try. Take slolemn skiing, combine it with snowboarding, and you get wake boarding. Very fun, potentially very painful. The afternoon consisted of lounging on the boat in yet another cove, enjoying the sun, swimming and eating. No complaints.

Tonight I will experience the Austin nightlife which is teeming with the famed underground music of "these here parts." We will enjoy food, friends and 'The Gourds.' Hopefully this time the artists will have more to offer than two harmonica notes. I'm feeling optimistic.
