Photos from Austin, or The one with the squirrel underpants

I had to take a little overnight trip to Austin last week, and this time I actually got the camera out and used it.  I mostly just hung around 6th street and the wonderful weirdness there.

But the best part of my trip was just before I headed home.  I went to THE BEST TOY STORE I HAVE EVER SEEN.  Thanks to my Austin expert Rita who brought me here many years ago and introduced me to the wonderfulness of Toy Joy. And thanks to my phone that got me here without getting lost.  I needed to pick up some goodies for a certain ‘experts’ birthday, so I hung out in my favorite toy store for way too long, and then it started pouring, so I stayed a bit longer.  It’s just magical.

Need an inflatable moose head? Check.

Short on unicorns? They’ve got you covered.

Apparently, DINO’s are a girls other best friend.

And, as promised… squirrel underpants.

I also saw some awesome rain clouds on my way home. I pulled off the highway and found a nice place to pull over and get some shots.  I played around in lightroom a bit to make the clouds look cooler. =) Enjoy.

  • Katie in MA - I will def have to get directions to that toy store the next time I head down there! There’s a cool 3-story independent book store near the university that I always visit, too. And those are the coolest rain pictures I have ever, ever seen. Gorgeous!
