Barton Creek

Spent two days rubbing shoulders with the rich of Austin, on top of a hill at Barton Creek Resort. Despite my severe prejudices, the place is pleasant: quiet and understated, and the staff had nothing of the usual aloofness of other Austin establishments I encountered before.
This was my room with a view; that's the chaise lounge left to the bed I referred to in a previous post. I do need one of those, and if you read as often as I do, you need one too. With a fluffy blanket and a reading lamp.

If you can find one at a junk shop that has a sound frame and decent padding, it's really easy (and sooo much cheaper) to refinish it yourself. There are a lot of discount fabric warehouses nowadays that specialize in designer upholstery fabrics for as little as ten bucks a yard. (The manufacturers dump their leftover bolts because it's last years colors/patterns/whatever.) A staple gun and a sewing machine with a heavy-duty needle, and you're in business.
