Town Lake

One of our favorite things to do in Austin is walk around what is called Town Lake which is actually part of a dammed up river, done to control flooding. I see that they have renamed it Lady Bird Lake, the wife of President Johnson years back, but it will always be Town Lake to us. They had horrible flooding in Austin and the surrounding area a few months ago but it hasn’t rained since and the trail is very dusty, coating my dark running shoes when I walk there. I love being there early in the morning when the light is good.

I especially liked the light on this tree with the water in the background.

This was under one of the bridges.

The same bridge with a nice reflection and a boat being rowed under it.

Of course, I am seeing family while here. This is my son, Jason, with his five boys. They certainly were interested in whatever he had on his phone-I forget what it was now.
