my austin experience, an iphoneography photo tour

My first trip to Austin was filled with plenty of meetings on gynecologic cancers, a decent amount of networking with some very smart people, productive brainstorming of ideas for work, and plenty of rest. I didn’t have a car, so my time there was limited to what I could explore in the downtown area on foot – except for one night when a good friend took me out for dinner.

I present to you my iPhone photos (mostly) of my Austin experience. My experience, other than meetings? Food.

    Looks like such a nice little family outing! I’m waiting for my backyard blueberries to turn ripe for the picking! Unfortunately, I’m headed up north soon so I worry I won’t be around come harvest time in my neck of the woods. These fresh blueberries look absolutely delicious!

    What great photos and it looks like everyone enjoyed themselves. Reminds me of picking berries as a little kid with my Grandmother. Happy Sunday!!

    Takes me back many years to North Carolina and doing the same thing with my kids; we always looked forward to picking a bunch of blueberries to have both fresh and then also freeze for the remainder of the year. Nothing quite like the berries fresh from a farm is there?
