|Toy Joy, a really fun store just north of campus.|
As far as I'm concerned, this is a must-see for our visitors, but so far, none of them have agreed.
|Garden of Hope at a church. I'm pretty sure the statues are Mary and Joseph. The live one is Chad.|
|Okay, it's kind of hard to see in this picture, but the far lane is packed and barely moving.|
This is why I choose public transportation, because sitting in that would make me crazy.
|A bench. Nothing too exciting.|
|To judge by the number of check-ins I see at La Madeline on Foursquare,|
this is a popular place. I contented myself with taking a picture.
|A holding tank thing for water, to keep it from flooding the freeway, should it ever rain again.|
Unfortunately, at the moment we have no need to hold any rain.
|We've decided that we must get a picture of one of us at|
a bus stop on every journey. If you enlarge the pic, you can
see the sign for the #3 in the corner.
|A thrift store which, to my regret, had just closed for the day when I arrived. But how cute|
is that drawer set on the roof?
|I never turn down the chance to take a picture of something with one of my|
siblings' names on it.
|I didn't even notice this from the bus, but I thought the artwork was pretty enough|
to merit a picture.
|A blue door. Not in Notting Hill.|
|Another shop that I would have happily gone into, but which was not open.|
|You'll need to enlarge this one for full effect. I took the picture because of the unlikely|
juxtaposition of two services; the hair salon in front, and appropriately enough, the
colorectal doctors in the back.
|Another unlikely one-- a pub + a dentist. Both in the same building.|
|This is the outdoor seating at the pub, complete with water jets to cool people off.|
|Nothing says "Medical Office" like some towers at the corners, presumably for|
locking up difficult patients.
|I don't know why this stop is so sublime. Perhaps because it's shady?|
|Marathon Boulevard! The Austin Marathon does not, however, run down this|
street (at least, not in the past five or so years).
|At first, this seemed like the sort of place I'd like to check out...|
|... until I saw the inside. Guess they're out of business.|
|A factory! For the yummy goodness that are kolaches!|
|When we first moved here, I thought this was a local chain. I'm still kind of|
bummed that it isn't.
|They do, however, have the best bike racks.|
|Waterloo Ice House. Note that the sawed-off bits of the canoes have not been wasted.|
|That's Children's Clothing on the left and The Birkenstock Shop on|
the right. Presumably, the circle in the middle is for frisbeees or footballs
or whatever when the employees get bored.
