Stop #28 – Austin, TX

Austin is one of the cities we were most looking forward to visiting on our trip.  We had heard really good things, and of course it’s home to Franklin BBQ, and that had Billy really excited.  We had a pretty long drive from Crystal Beach, and we added to the length by throwing in a stop at the Houston IKEA.

Galveston, Oh Galveston…

Crystal Beach is on the Bolivar Peninsula, which is northeast of Galveston.  We actually had to take a ferry to get there, but it was really fun, and free!  You just drive onto the boat, and then you can get out if you want while it’s taking you across.  The seagulls know what’s up and they’re all over it.

Another Birthday Boy!

November 4th was Finn’s birthday!  (Yes, I know I am SO behind on this travel log, I’m working on it!)  He turned eleven, which is just unfathomable to me.  He was so little, like, yesterday!

Stop #25 – Navarre, FL

We were really ready for some warmer temps, and also ready for some sand!  We wanted to head to New Orleans next, but it was too long of a drive for one day so we decided to break it up with a week at the beach 🙂
