Murdochs

This is a little more than a souvenir shop on the Seawall, although you can find lots of fun stuff here to take home as a reminder of your trip to Galveston.  Murdochs has an awesome deck where you can enjoy a drink and the Gulf breeze while sitting in one of their rocking chairs.  It is also a great photo spot for the Ferris Wheel on the Pleasure Pier.

Deutschen Pfest

IMG_1458

The Pflugerville Deutschen Pfest made for a fun afternoon.  Of course my favorite activity was the petting zoo with the little pigs, rabbits, goats, and chickens who just wanted to have a relaxing Sunday.  The bands were good.  My favorite was a band called The Eggmen, which is a Beatles tribute band.  Otherwise, it was a big happy fair with rides, booths, food and drinks.

SXSW by Day II

IMG_0809

The SXSW Interactive Festival never ceases to amaze me.  Have an empty parking lot downtown?  OK, we will install a Ferris Wheel for fun.  Or maybe an upside down church building.  Presidential traffic jams got you down?  Try to out grumpy old Grumpy Cat who is coming to town.  We also have R2-D2 and parties galore to boost your spirits.  This Festival is awesome, and it’s only the first day so far.
