Bopping around: Cream Whiskers and UT

Another of the blogs I read mentioned a cute little cream puff bakery near UT, so since it's Spring Break, we decided to head down there and check it out.
 $10 bought us three cream puffs and a couple of bottled waters.  I got the cookie crust puff with coffee cream and chocolate ganache drizzle.  It was all I could do not to lick the plate.
Can I have another three or a hundred, please?
 Scout was enjoying the free Wifi and Snap-chatting his sister.  They have been sending each other funny Snapchats a dozen times per day.
 Bubbie enjoyed his, too, clearly!  He's pretty much been an eating machine lately, though.
 We had an hour and a half on our parking meter, so we headed towards campus.  I don't remember there being so much graffiti everywhere west of campus!  This was just a tiny bit of it - it was on every fence.
 This fence with the tree growing in the middle had a sign labeling it specifically for graffiti.  It reminded me of last Spring Break when we drove around Austin looking for murals to pose by. 
Even graffiti can be beautiful, and still SOME people I know won't smile for photos!
 Scout got waaay better pics than I did of the whole walkabout, I'm sure.  Even tho the day was cloudy at times and it was Spring Break, there were LOTS of people on campus.
 We walked up to the Tower and went inside.  It looks very much like the Capitol on the inside with it's wide staircases framed in scroll-y iron. Most of the UT buildings went up from mid 20's to late 30's.
The campus is really pretty; it bought back a flood of memories.  I wish I hadn't wasted my time at UT - been a better student and been involved in more activities.  But it is what is was and if I had planted myself more firmly there, I might not have had a Scout or Bubbie to bop around with yesterday...
