Austin has a rotunda and bbq which made me rotunder

The Capitol Rotunda in Austin was one of the few things we saw there or in the Hill Country that you couldnt eat or dance to. Nothing was quite the trip as theSalt Lick and its picnic tables and bbq pit and iconic scenes evocative of John Ford shots of john Wayne through the cabin window. The Kimber Modern was a great place to stay in Austin with the intimacy of a b and b and the Ian schrager design edge and utility and the autonomy you dont get in many B and Bs. Ye Kendall Inn in Boerne offered a chapel suite surrounded by log cabins. The best place for a nightcap was the Driscoll Hotel and The Hangar Hotel on the airport runway in Fredericksburg was unique. BBQ BBQ everywhere and nary a veg to eat. Lake Travis has a rube goldberg stone structure called Oasis collage of a castle overlooking a great sunset. The Tex Mex plate is from Manuels. Lamberts had music and bbq and The Continental had an Elvis cover band celebrating the king"s 75th birthday. And the LBJ Library had LBJ.
