So another thing checked off my list of things to do in Austin. Oh about 5 or so years ago, when I had another blog, I had made a list of the things I wanted to do, and there were plenty that included my move to Austin, and in that the things that Austin had to provide, one of which was the Trail of Lights tour. Checked off my list Saturday. I and a friend went down to Zilker Park, and did the trail of lights, and it was awesome, beyond what my mind had expected. Some told me not to get too excited, but pshh on them, I was all excited. One for the fact, that I was attending this, and another because I had never gone on a light tour, so much fun indeed.
The trip started with a bus ride to pick up friend at another bus stop, took my umbrella, because the forecast called for lots of rain, and cold, good to be prepared right. So stopped at designated stop, got off and met friend, walked over to her car, and in that instant figured out I had left my umbrella onboard the bus that had just pulled off and was on its way. Doh! Another umbrella lost, but my coat had a hoodie on it, so I was protected just in case the rains came.
We caught the next metro rapid bus, to downtown where we picked up a shuttle that was going to the trail of lights, in fact this shuttle would be dropping us off right there, no fuss, no wait, no crazy parking, it only cost five dollars per person, round trip, so I paid both our ways, and it was easy, breezy, peasy. Next stop, Trail of lights. We got there, got off the shuttle and proceeded to enjoy the lights. Here are just a few photos I took that night. It was so much fun, I had a good friend there to enjoy the time with, and got another thing checked off my Austin List.
