Free museum day…

Was yesterday, was going to attempt 3.  The LBJ, The Harry Ransom, and The Bob Bullock.  I only made one.  The Bob Bullock. This was my second time being here, it was fun, but the weather was hot out, so I only stayed for an hour. Here are a few photos.





La Belle was the star of my show.  Took other photos, but loved this ship one.  Enjoy.

Caught up in the rain

So today I decided to go bus hopping, I already had in mind where I was headed.  The thing is, I left the house sans umbrella, knowing the possibilities the skies would open up with rain.  Nice move on my part.  To which they eventually did and I got a little wet.  Of course before that happened, I did get to snap off a couple of phone pics to my destination.  In all, I did accomplish that.  Here are a couple of photos from The Hope Outdoor Gallery.

I had also planned on going to the Brodie Oaks shopping plaza,but the rain put that plan to a stop.  Another time,another time.  Though the entire day was not a loss.  Looking forward to visiting graphfitti park again.

The One that got away…

So as the story goes,  sitting on the pond at lake Marble falls, not doing any fishing, just photographing things.  My mom hooked a big un’.  Well I have no photo to show, only because, it snapped her line, and got away.  Aww, but it was a huge one indeed.  She was using a piece of slim Jim as her bait.  I do think it was a bass, it was really big, and it really set the tone for her day, because she did not catch another big fish for the rest of the afternoon.  But that did not stop my dad from catching a nice haul, he caught a medium fish, then some smaller ones.  It was a perfect day for him, but in all it was a pretty good day out on the pond for all.  Here are some of the photos I took.

 

Here’s to having fun, good family, and fine fishing.  See you on the lake side of life.

Awesome Finds

Yesterday me, mom, and dad went on a little day trip. To Marble Falls.  Which is a gem of a place, it was beautiful and peaceful.  This place had good fishing spots, something we have been looking for since moving here, now we found it.  It is about nine miles out of Burnett Texas.  There are fishing places in Austin,but this place is gorgeous.  I love day tripping, and always have fun when with my mom and dad that way. But that is a story for another day.  Today is a day of photos from my day trip to Marble Falls.  Enjoy.

 

 

Another thing I saw on our way to marble falls, was in Burnett Texas, they have an air museum.  They are also having an air show in September, and I am hoping that I can attend that.  Too Soon to tell,but keeping fingers crossed, since I have a thing about air shows, and have missed them for so many years.  It would be good to get to one.  Another story for another day my friends.

Sucky Service, but dam good food!

So yesterday, me and a friend went out to eat, we chose to stop by the Applebees on N IH35.  We were seated, and our waitress came and took our order, first off, I asked for water with lemon, and I got Water with no lemon.  Next we ordered our food; I got the order of Chicken Tenders and Fries, my friend ordered a Grilled Steak and potatoes, the food was very delicious.  The service not so; my friend had gotten a Blackberry Honey Iced tea, after I tasted hers, I ordered one as well.  It took like forever to get that tea, plus she had messed up other peoples orders as well, she had to keep coming back to tables to re get what they had ordered, then she gave me a refill, of the suppose tea, which happen to be just plain tea, and not the blackberry honey.  It is a good thing the friend was paying, for that waitress would not have gotten any kind of tip, Besides that, the food was delicious.  Eat your heart out.

 

I won’t be going back to this particular Applebees , but there are others to choose from in the city.
