It's Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, and time for Outdoor Wednesday. Take a little break from cooking and stop by to visit Susan at a Southern Daydreamer. Susan hosts Outdoor Wednesday each week, rain or shine, and everyone shares their favorite outdoor photos. My last two posts were from our visit to the Texas State Cemetery. This week, we'll visit someplace a bit livelier!
You may have noticed the orange script in honor of our fabulous Longhorns. Saturday night, DH and I drove our niece into Austin to take some night shots of Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium during the Texas-Kansas game. The Longhorns won 51-20, leaving only 2 more games to complete an undefeated season and hopefully a trip to Pasadena! Click to enlarge (click twice to view full screen) There was not an empty seat in the house. And this place is LOUD! We were on the top level of a parking garage about a mile away and we could hear the cheering loud and clear.
This is a shot of the UT tower. It glowed orange later that night and hopefully will glow orange again on Thanksgiving. The park in the foreground of the photo was full of tailgaters celebrating another Longhorn victory. Our niece wanted to know why all those people didn't just go watch the game in the stadium! She was also fascinated by all the tents that had flat screen tvs!
I wish you all a blessed and safe Thanksgiving. We will be hosting dinner at our house this year with friends and family. And watching the Horns! Hook 'em!
