More Austin

Austin is the capital of the state of Texas. Austin is a beautiful city with hills, valleys and lakes running through the city. Austin has a current population of over 700,000 and over 1,000,000 in the metropolitan area.
Austin is a popular vacation spot with 2 lakes within the city limits and 5 more lakes to the northwest of Austin. These lakes make up the Highland Lakes chain of lakes and are very popular for water activities such as boating, swimming, water skiing, etc. The mild winter climate attracts many visitors from the northern states in the winter.

Austin has really piqued our interest.  Yes, it's beautiful, green, trees everywhere.  As we drove through the Lake Travis area, I noticed (barely) a Target sign, but could see no building.  We had to drive down around a curve behind the sign area before we could see anything.  I like that.
I don't know what this building is, but isn't it beautiful?

You know, I'm a pretty soft-hearted, easy going, girlie girl. However, I would TOTALLY have gone in to figure this one out!!!

Of course, at any festival around the United States, there is always some tie-dyed offerings for sale.
Just on the outskirts of downtown Austin:
Oh, yes! We will definitely be back! Perhaps a winter packed full of Austin!


  1. The contrast between the beauty of the glass paneled building and the bar was superb. Some inside shots of the bar would have been perfect!

    I bet the last chap's just trying to keep Austin for himself!
