2021 Autumn Leg 1: Stu Travels to Austin via New Orleans

September 30 2021: Last minute hugs saw Stu and Winnie departing home for his solo trip to Austin where he will meet up with Joan and visit his kids for Thanksgiving.

Click here to share Stu’s first night at the Southern Grace Lavender Farm, a small oasis of beauty motivated by one couple’s faith-based desire to welcome others.

After a lovely night at the Lavender Farm, Stu continued to his favorite stop (from a food perspective) in New Orleans: The Faubourg Brewery. Share the enjoyment of Beignets and Shrimp & Grits plus some Oktoberfest celebration by clicking here. 

Bolivar and Galveston Islands, located on either side of Galveston Bay the bay meets the Gulf of Mexico are both Stu’s next stop. Sierra and Dylan brought their lucky parents to Jamaica Beach Resort on Galveston Island for part of Stu’s Galveston visit. Lovely ending to a fine few days by the Gulf.

After traveling West from Florida to Texas, Stu went on to the Austin area where he will visit his family and meet up with Joan to explore the Hill Country in search of Fall Foliage.  Follow Stu’s camping and boating and Joan and Stu’s search for the perfect fall foliage image by clicking here.
