      We have a visitor her from Maine. He is about 20ish and we will be in the downtown area for a little bit Saturday. He is not new to Texas, but he has not really explored a lot of Austin. To kill a little time we wanted to show him a little of "weird" Austin.

      I got some things jotted down, but I thought I'd ask y'all for suggestions. I thought of some places where I have found caches, but a lot of those places (like the stacked rock sculptures) are gone now.

      We are going to lunch at Shady Grove and then head to the Bullock for a couple of hours before heading up north. We'll probably have a couple of hours before and an hour or so after lunch to kill.

      So, any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      SQ/HW

        Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, a burger in one hand, a beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

          Of course, you need to eat lunch from a Trailer ... the Crepe Ladies are down on the south side of the river, I don't know where Hudson's 'Cones' trailer is, but I've had their crunchy fried stuff (esp the avocado) and it's awesome!
           
          Seider Springs (below Seton) is interesting if it's doing its ebb and flow thing.
          Beat the heat -- go to Inner Space Caverns or Barton Springs.
           
          Helping?
           
          I could camp out in the Bullock all day myself.
