Cooler temps, crunchy sidewalks (acorns!), Halloween, Thanksgiving, football – boy do I LOVE this time of year! Tim and I have really been enjoying the cooler weather.
Here are some pics of our outing back in September atop Mount Bonnell.
Second highest point in Austin
Not too bad for a “self-timer” shot, eh??
Some of the ‘dinky’ homes along Lake Austin
You can walk along this path and take in different views of the Lake
After we were done at Mount Bonnell, we drove around some of the neighborhoods near there and came upon Mayfield Park and Preserve.
This is part of the preserve. There are trails that lead down to Lake Austin.
I LOVE the Spanish Moss
Here’s a closer look
Tim waiting patiently for me to take all my pics
In the Park, there’s a cottage, several ponds, flower beds, etc. Oh, and I can’t forget about the peafowl! Check it out…
If you look close at this one, you can see the little fishies swimming around
There were pink & yellow flowers too
This is a cast iron pond
loved the details of it
Mrs. Peahen and her cute litte Peachick. NO, I’m not making that up – that is officially what they are called. Well except for the Mr and Mrs part.
The chick was really cute – the hen would walk around and when she would stop & peck at the ground, the chick would run over and peck at the ground too. Not sure if he/she was really getting anything but it was pretty cool to watch it mimic it’s mama.
There's so much more but my camera battery died after only a few shots. I will be going back soon to take more!
