I awoke on Sunday at a motel near the University of Texas. I ate some continental breakfast and rested until noon checkout. I did a complete unpack, repack of the buggy, showered, changed, and hit the town.
Tre grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina. He has been in Austin since 2001. He wasn’t sure how he got there on the sidewalk, but told me he has problems with his blood pressure. I gave him my water bottle and he accepted! I also gave him some cranberry juice. He asked me for some money and I was able to help him out. He needed a sleeping bag, but didn’t want to take mine if it was the only one I had. Tre was really thankful. He was hoping to find some shade and a place to rest. We parted ways.
I was planning on attending confession at St. Mary’s cathedral but arrived too late. :(.
Outside I met Darrell. He was camera shy, but I was able to help him out with some cranberry juice. I hit sidewalk.
I met Lewis outside the library. He asked me if I had any food. I was able to give him the rest of the walnuts and dried cherries I had. Wished I could have brought him somewhere. Lewis was really thankful. We parted ways.
I forget this guys name :(. He came up to me outside a park and told me he was hungry. I wish I could have taken him somewhere to eat :(. I had a few slices of bread and some peanut butter. He accepted! He was really thankful, and with a peace sign we parted ways.
I made my way along a bicycle path to the west side of town. I stopped at the facilities at a park by the river. I found some empty bottles of water. I cleaned them out the best I could and filled them up at the sink. I hit the path.
I made my way to St. John Newman parish just off of Bee Cave Road. It was a huge and expansive property. It was so peaceful! I couldn’t find anyone to get in touch with, so I found a secluded corner and set up the hammock.
