Since we are still in Austin and looks like we will be for another week at least, this edition of Viewscomes from where we are since the views of Port Aransas are not very pretty.
Here is a shot of the capital building taken from 5th Avenue and Lamar which is close to where we are staying.
Lucy and Bailey are used to a morning walk on the beach so if you don’t mind here is a pictorial of our morning walk in Austin. This is a shot of the city looking East back over our shoulders.
The first thing Lucy and Bailey had to get used to was the crosswalk.
Here is the crushed granite trail looking West. Not sand but close.
This is a view of the trail looking back toward the East
A watering station. Bailey says, “Pass.”
A lovely little creek running under the path
A shot of a golden lab hitting the water.
This is Town Lake which runs on the South side of the trail. The Golden Retriever is on the right and boaters way off to the left.
I was surprised to see Poison Ivy warnings.
This is the East end of Town Lake
Fluffy white dog in the water.
All I need is the air that I breathe.
This is a platform for viewing Town Lake. The graffiti says SLEEPY and on a hot day this looked like a good nap place.
Historical information about Town Lake (Shoal Creek) and the founding of Austin as the capital
The most Eastern bank of Town Lake
Some turtles in a muddy flooded creek.
Another shot of the Eastern edge of Town Lake.
Hope you enjoyed the walk.
