Views of the Neighborhood – Things I Missed

Last week I ran a post on the art of Lakeway. I missed a few pieces, so I want to give you an update. This is a bronze sculpture and shows two playing chess and is titled “The Game” by artist Robert Homes. It is out in front of the Justice Center. A better shot of the […]

Views of the Neighborhood – City Sculptures

Lakeway has several permanent art pieces located around the city. I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of them. This is a bronze entitled Craine and is located near the Justice Center. I think the little creek is perfect. Where possible, I have included the artist. Not all of the artists […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Lake Travis Community Library

Today we are visiting the Lake Travis Community library in Lakeway. Here is a bit of history quoted from their webpage. “The Lake Travis Community Library was founded in 1985 and through the generosity of Lake Travis ISD, shared space with the Lake Travis High School Library for over 20 years. In May 2004, voters […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Community Spirit – A Repost on the Second Anniversary of Hurricane Harvey.

Since this is the second anniversary of Hurricane Harvey which devastated Port Aransas, I thought I would repeat a post that ran after the hurricane showing the community spirit there. I think it is that spirit which helped many people through difficult times. We no longer live in Port Aransas but the experience of the hurricane […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Driveways

I know it seems a little odd to feature driveways on Views of the Neighborhood. I just found that some of them are so steep up or down that I couldn’t help myself in taking pictures of them. They may interest you as well. Here is one that drops about thirty feet and then you have […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Spicewood Winery

Since 1992 Spicewood Vineyards has been producing distinguished Texas Hill Country wines that are known for their timeless appeal and exceptional […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Visit to Moon Valley Nurseries

I know the Producer, and I seem to be fixated on nurseries. Last week we had to visit another in the quest for an olive tree and Artichoke Agave. Our landscaper was having a difficult time finding them, so we thought we would help in the search. I hope you enjoy the quest. Here is […]

Views of the neighborhood – Visit to Natural Gardener Part II

Here we are at the Natural Gardener again. If you recall I did part one and then took a Fourth of July parade break. There are a lot of photos but few words. (Thank you, John) I hope you enjoy the stroll. As a reminder, here is a map of the place – huge. Natural rainwater […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Fourth of July Parade

Since this week was the Fourth. I thought you would enjoy some of the sights and sounds of the Lakeway Fourth of July parade. There were over 100 entries in the parade so I was forced to edit the numbers of photos. There are still way too many but sometimes it was hard to cut. […]

Views of the Neighborhood – A Visit to The Natural Gardener

This past week the producer and I visited The Natural Gardener, which is a retail nursery featuring organic plants and shrubs. We were surprised at the size of the grounds and the number of species offered. There was so much to take in, I’m going to use two posts to cover it all. This week […]
