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 […]

Views of the Neighborhood – More Plants

Since not much is going on around the neighborhood, The Producer and I went out searching for signs of spring. Come walk with us. As we get started we should read the famous signboard in front of El Arroyo restaurant in Austin. Pretty much describes Texas weather. Yeah, this morning, lots of fog. Sure sign […]

Views of the Neighborhood – A Walk in the Smith Greenbelt.

Today we are taking a stroll in the Smith Greenbelt in Lakeway, Texas. We are approaching the greenbelt. A gentle stream and Lilly pads with a main road in the background. There is a footbridge ahead and a place to sit. We have to cross a stream to get to the greenbelt. Love the green […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Holiday Decorations

Views of the Neighborhood – The Hills

A lot of folks think Texas is flat. Although a lot of it is, some parts are pretty hilly. We live in one of those parts. I took some photos to give you an idea of what the topography around here looks like. I hope you like the Views today. Here is what I look at […]
