Views of the Neighborhood – Wildflowers

Since spring is officially here The Producer and I decided to go out yesterday to see if the wildflowers have begun to bloom. We were pleased to be able to find that they were doing their best to bring a smile. I hope you enjoy the walk. On our way to the Greenbelt, we passed […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Bike Ride

Here I am on my bike. This is my only outside event so, I thought I would record some of the more unusual things seen while riding the neighborhood. Yes, that house and Jeep are purple. You can’t really see them, but there are purple lights around the tree as well. “Trash day? Sure, toss that […]

Views of the Neighborhood – City Wide Garage Sale

Here we are back to the Activity Center In Lakeway for the City-Wide Garage Sale last weekend. I decided to cover the sale held here since this may be the last gathering of people for a while. I know I have done the sale before, but given the uncertainties of Covid-19, I didn’t think you […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Elementary School Art

The Lake Travis Community Library featured a display of Elementary School children. Of course, I wanted to give you an idea of the talent of these children. I have to say the room in which the art was displayed was not conducive to photos. There were way too many lights and the art was framed […]

Unlike traditional western-style painting, Chinese Brush Painting is meant to capture the spirit of the subject rather than its photographic reality. The ink and […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Street Signs in Lakeway

I thought I would try something a little different. There are so many different names of streets in Lakeway, and yet some have a commonality. For instance, a number of them have a nautical theme, which makes sense since there is a lake here. Since Lakeway was founded in the sixties there are some streets […]

StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the tr,ail, you’re directed to the next page in the […]

As you can see, the event […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Music at the Library

As if the place wasn’t cool enough, every Friday the Lake Travis Community Library hosts a musical performance. This week is was The Southside Sheiks Band   These guys bill themselves as “Raisin’ a ruckus wherever they go, the Southside Sheiks will play old-timey jug band, ragtime, and holler blues.” Other weeks have included a […]
