Texas Stars

Our last day in Austin we spent walking the city. We went through the State Capital and around the grounds. The architecture in the city is somewhat of a blend of styles. The heavy Mexican influence, some German European  and a touch of Frank Lloyd Wright. State Capital grounds all around the country have sculptures generally surround by old trees and young flower gardens. Which was the case here too. Not going to get into the politics or history which is full of details.

We went to the Bullock Historical Museum which is just a few blocks down from the Capital. They had a special exhibit here a hint: "Pride and Joy". Did you guess who it is, think music...okay it was on The Texas Blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan. His brother Jimmie put together the exhibit filled with music, videos of his brother playing in Austin. The pride of Texas he was born in Dallas and died too early at 35 in a crash. He left behind major influence in music. The city is filled with his sounds, all the old and new musicians played at least two of his sounds with each jazz club we went to while in Austin, which was four.

On our way out of Austin we will have his music to carry us on the road. Good-bye Austin, next stop Dallas to visit a friend, then moving on to our next state.
