We visited the Gone With the Wind exhibit. The greeters were helpful, and the exhibit was extensive. Quite a history lesson in American cinema!

It's always fun to visit the campus of UT at Austin. We enjoy walking in the area and taking in such sights as the Bell Tower and the fountains. We always stop at the Co-Op to buy some burnt orange. :)
