Austin Vibe…

I love Austin, Texas. I wish there was a better, more articulate way of saying it, but that’s the truth. I love to just BE in Austin. I think it has a ‘vibe’ all of its own.

I love to go down around 1st Street or Congress Avenue and just people watch. Well, and dog watch as well I suppose.

People come out to exercise or play with their pets and just relax and enjoy the day or unwind after work. I can’t explain it really it’s just a ‘feeling’ about the place.

Lots of folks like to throw tennis balls or sticks out in to the water and have their dog go fetch it. It’s great for the dog who gets to cool off in the lake. There are days so hot though makes you want to jumpin with him.

Austin is a great place to meet people – and who knows – your pet may even come away with making a new friend.

I do like to come down here and people watch, relax, and pay my respects to Stevie Ray Vaughn. Reminds me of a family/friend of mine who played like him who recently passed away – I guess they’re playing together now. (R.I.P. Jason Baric).

Just thought I would share a little about this wonderful place so bring your dog, rent a canoe or kayak and come down and chill out with some wonderful folks, make a few friends and enjoy the day.

Peace, Love, and Good Vibes,

Austin Bats…

I think it’s rather unique to have a million bats fly out from under a bridge every night at sunset. Not to mention the amount of bugs they eat. It’s like the sunset party in Key West, FL watching the sun go down. In Austin, Texas – they watch the sun go down AND the bats come out! Beautiful!

So all these bats come flying out of this bridge right at sunset and the people line the bridge to watch. It’s great!

Austin is very beautiful at night – I guess I like the city after all, though I do miss the country alot.

One last shot of the bats and I have to attend to the business of finding a job.
