Figaro, then and now…
In Austin for AND staying at McKinney Falls State Park in our home on wheels? (No hotel!) Does it get any better than this?
Saw this on my journey.
Thought of you two.
HAD to eat here.
I'm sad that Stephen Colbert never had a chance to put one on his shelf on The Daily Show.

Be sure to follow me here on Google+ I'm going to be doing more on here.
I visited the fort, which was interesting, but not terribly so, since it was mostly active around the Spanish American war in 1898 – though the site was initially scouted by Robert E. Lee (yes, THAT Robert E. Lee) in 1849. I found it to be quite modern by "St. Augustine" standards. It had a "dynamo room" where they generated electricity, and the crew of the gigantic 12" mortars were given firing orders by telephone…
I guess that's what 200 years of progress gets ya. =)
After that, I went to North Beach, which has won several awards for being America's Most Beautiful Beach. I can see why. The sand there is…slightly coarser than talcum powder, and it's so smooth it feels silky in your fingers.
And I made a friend!
Look for a video coming up early next week at http://www.YarrVee.com
