Project 365 - Week 40

Project 365 - One photo a day for a year. Kind of like a photographic journal of my entire year!

Day 267 - Hello October! If you are following along on our block of the month, you can pick up October HERE or HERE.

Day 268 - Day one of the drive to visit my daughter in Austin, Texas. We stayed in the Hampton Inn in Texarcana, Texas. If you are ever in this area, I highly recommend this hotel. What's really cool is that I booked the room while we were on the road by using my TripAdvisor app on my cellphone! That app was so helpful during our 20 hours of driving each way.

Day 269 - The first night of our visit we stopped at this wine superstore! Oh where to begin!!! I did leave with a few bottles, plus I was introduced to Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced Rum at a tasting. Bought me a bottle of that when I returned home. Yum!

Day 270 - Wine tasting at the Six Shooters Cellars. Elyse and I tasted wine while Brian and Mike sat in the lounge area and waited for us.

Day 271 - Stopped off at the Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary. The zoo cares for animals that have all been rescued. Also a non-profit organization. I highly recommend stopping by there if you are in the area, and you can support all their hard work with these animals.

Day 272 - They have beautiful walking trails that run along the river with great views of the city. We walked over four miles on that trail. It was beautiful!

Day 273 - Day one of heading home. I just loved this bridge and look! It's my favorite color combination when it's paired with the beautiful blue sky.

  1. The bridge photo is absolutely stunning, was it taken from a moving car?

    1. Yes, it was taken from a moving car, and from my cellphone. I'm surprised it came out so good.

  2. What a good photo per day for a year. Maybe next year I'll steal your idea although I'm never very good at following up on good intentions. Last year I began looking for faces to photograph. Found several in nature, then quit the project. Wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

  3. That rum sounds pretty yummy. I take it Brian and Mike aren't wine drinkers?

    1. No. Brian doesn't drink at all and Mike rarely drinks. Either one are shoppers either but they just tagged along while Elyse and I did our things. Good guys!

  4. Wine heaven! I could spend hours in :)
    And I love that the zoo has rescued great!
    Sounds and looks like a wonderful trip.

  5. I agree with Marieken, the bridge photo is really nice. Looks like you had a wonderful trip.

  6. Amazing! I'd love to visit Texas sometimes....Guess I'm already in love with the idea of a zoo AND animal sanctuary :D
