Everyone is up early as we are off to downtown Austin again for our very first tourist outing - the Austin Duck Adventure, 75 minutes of sightseeing that includes Historic Sixth Street, the State Capitol Building, Bob Bullock State History Museum, the Governor’s Mansion, and Lake Austin. 

The tour was such fun and totally worth the money, we all loved learning about the quirky history of Austin and the experience of going from road to water in an amphibious vehicle was unnerving but hilarious....http://austinducks.com

We knew downtown would be busy but we couldn't work out why we were struggling to find a parking space down South Congress, we later found out it Austin's annual Easter Pet Parade and Costume Contest, obviously Austinites love their pets very much!

We decide to head out of town to the Hula Hut for lunch, it really feels like you are on holiday in a Caribbean water front restaurant, you need to remember Austin is inland by a minimum three hour drive.

Hula Hut is also heaving with people but full of energy and colour but we get a table and check out the menu, another great thing for me was mum and dad trying foods they admitted they would have usually have not ordered in UK and again more clean plates!
