Lady Bird Lake – Austin, TX


May 24, 2009 – Lady Bird Lake

Lady Bird Lake map

This was such a delightful park! It ran along the Lady Bird Lake which runs right outside the downtown area. There was a dog park, people kayaking, the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue, and Congress Bridge which houses the amazing Austin Bats.
We saw a few people playing guitars on benches, lots of dogs playing in the lake, and generally people having fun.


“Well there’s floodin’ down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
Well there’s floodin’ down in Texas
All of the telephone lines are down
And I’ve been tryin’ to call my baby
Lord and I can’t get a single sound

Well dark clouds are rollin’ in
Man I’m standin’ out in the rain
Well dark clouds are rollin’ in
Man I’m standin’ out in the rain
Yeah flood water keep a rollin’
Man it’s about to drive poor me insane

Well I’m leavin’ you baby
Lord and I’m goin’ back home to stay
Well I’m leavin’ you baby
Lord and I’m goin’ back home to stay
Well back home are no floods or tornados
Baby and the sun shines every day”

Even the graffiti in Austin is quirky!

Loved the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue!  And it was fun that we saw a person playing a guitar while sitting near the statue.  Just so fitting.

Funnily enough, this was the first time we asked a complete stranger to take our photo!  I think she did a most excellent job, I might add.  :)

This little dog park area of the lake was SO much fun!  We stood and watched the dogs play in the water for at least an hour.
