After finishing up in Houston we started to make our way to our next destination, Austin. The motorways in Texas are some of the most bold and stunning I had seen all trip, and I thought it was amazing they even had start symbols built into them. On this drive we stopped for lunch in Bastrop, known as the most ‘historic town in Texas’. Bastrop has a population of nearly 10,000 and is part of the Greater Austin area. We got lunch at the widely regarded Maxine’s Cafe and loved the atmosphere with all the old signage and decor. We then walked around main street to see some of the historic buildings that the town is known for.
We stopped in at the visitor center to see if they had any brochures, and the lady was so excited to see us and spent 10 minutes telling us about the city and giving us suggestions of things to do. We decided to take some of her advice to walk down to the Colorado River which was really peaceful and we even saw some turtles swimming by. It was unfortunate that we were only stopping for lunch as there seemed like there is so much to see and do, but Austin was calling us!
