Playing Hookie

Working two jobs takes a toll on a man so Toby decided to play hookie today. We took advantage of the day by doing some sightseeing. Our first destination was to the Loop 360 Pennybacker Bridge. The drive to the bridge has beautiful scenery so we stopped off to the side of the road and took some snapshots. That in itself is a feat. The roads are really winding and hilly but that doesn't seem to stop these Austinites from driving 100 miles an hour around the curves.

Here are some shots at the lookout over Pennybacker:

Our next stop was Emma Long Park which is nearby. We put it on our list of favorite parks. There was actually some "sand", which was mostly dirt, at the beach area.

There seemed to be some kind of vulture fest going on here. Click on the pic and look in the top of the tree:

Summer found some "sand" playmates:

After we left the park we headed home to our own park/pool and took advantage of some swim time.

One of the things I love most about this city is there is so much to do that no one place is ever overcrowded. There are enough different activities to entertain the masses of people.
