Enjoying Austin one last time

July 21, 2015

Last weekend was my last chance to enjoy Austin for a while. A friend flew in for the weekend and we had a pretty full weekend of fun, starting with indoor skydiving at IFly.

Joe’s 1st flight: awesome body control!

Then we headed to the ACL Live at the Moody Theater to see Buddy Guy. At 78 years old, Mr. Guy puts on a fantastic show. His opening act for a while now has been Quinn Sullivan, and if you haven’t heard of Quinn, Google him or check him out on YouTube. And don’t lose sight of the fact that this kid is still only 16 years old!

Sitting outside the Moody Theater before watching Buddy Guy play in Austin. It occurred to me while sitting there that this would be the last time I would wear jeans for at least a year, as I’m not packing any with me.

All of that, another trip to Gourdough’s, and tubing on the river made for a nice time. But I’m back to final preparations for departure now. And of course now that I’m ready to go, the temps have hit the mid to upper 90s. Oh well… it only takes two days to get into the mountains of northern Mexico and it will be back to the 70s soon.
