Austin, Tx – Part 3

dtaustin1

On our third and final day in Austin, we tried to cram in as much sight seeing as possible before we had to drive back to the air port to catch our flight. We had talked about seeing the Barton Springs pretty much the entire time we were in Austin. The Barton Springs is a set of 4 natural water springs located in Zilker Park, where they have a man-made swimming pool that is filled with water from the main spring. It really is a beautiful sight, and had it not been under construction, or incredibly chilly, I would have loved to jump in!

During our trip, Matt kept saying he thought pretty much everywhere we went had been a place where they filmed a scene of Dazed and Confused. Although, I think in this case, he was correct. They did film a scene at one of Austin’s many Moonlight Towers, which was indeed located in Zilker Park. Pretty neat!

One thing I truly did love about Austin, and I can say this about several cities in the States, is that they have these adorably coloured houses. We would drive down entire streets, each house being totally unique in colour and style. I’d point to almost every house and notify Matt that I would like to live there. If I had taken a picture of every house I liked, there would probably be 100 photos to share. So we only took a few.

That’s about it for Austin! I would love to go back during the warmer months to really experience all the city has to offer, in terms of outdoor recreation. I really didn’t expect it to be as chilly as it was, and I definitely did not pack my suitcase with that in mind, hence the re-occurence of my big wool cardigan.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I spent most of my time putting the final touches on my apartment, which had been taking a back seat for the last few weeks. Feels nice to walk into my home with my frames on the walls, rather than on the floor.

    Those homes remind me of my time in the States. I loved all the pretty, unusual colour combinations of American painted houses too. And I wish English houses had decks like that! They’re really nice pictures. Looks like a great trip!
