Austin – Early June

Well, we didn’t realize that we had been absent from the Austin area for probably 5 years.  The hill country of Texas is one of our favorite places and Austin is the best place to start.

The growth in the area is unbelievable.  Austin used to be a nightmare to navigate, especially in the North/South directions.  Not any more, the place is lousy with toll-roads and freeways to ease congestion.  The GPS system didn’t have all of the updates for the new roads yet.

We decided to stay at the Austin RV Park North, which is located just north of the town near Round Rock and Pflugerville.


The park doesn’t have much in the form of amenities, but they do have large, deep sites, free Wi-Fi, and a laundry room.  They are conveniently located near Exit 250 on I-35, Hwy 1, and Hwy 45. 

The Sunset is still beautiful at the Oasis Restaurant at Lake Travis.


The restaurant had a serious fire a few years ago and is now re-opened.

Saturday we went for a swim in Lake Travis.  This is a very deep water lake and the water level is at a good high level which means that you don’t have to descend the cliffs very far to get wet.  The temperature is just about right.


The weather was gorgeous, however the wind was pretty stiff.  We left the lake around 3:30, ate, and then went out dancing.

Sunday we met some friends at the Tien Hong Chinese restaurant for Dim Sum.  It was quite good, however, because of a family spat amongst the owners, they will cease their Dim Sum in the near future.

    It was great to see you while you were here in Austin. We are so glad you called! We throughly enjoyed you at the dance and Tien Hong was great too. We see you got your jeep and it sounds like your enjoying it.

    Like you we are going back on the diet path. I just joined Nutrisystems. I like their commercial with Dan Marino and Larry “the cable guy” so much I picked them over all the other vendors. I was pleased to find out they have a program specifically for guys like me that have type II diabetes.

    Let us know the next time you are in the area and we will make plans to see you again.
