And yes, they’re all from Texas. 😉

Spring Time Along the Lake

We walked down the slope to the Hike & Bike.

Another weekend, another concert along

the shore before the heat arrives.

People outnumber the cars

but the cars can’t

move.

It’s a good time

to be walking, rowing

sitting on benches by the shoreline.

There’s only small windows of

time

to see the better side

of Austin

but

the view is mighty

fine

when the glass

has just been cleaned.

I’m not gonna have much commentary this time around.  Just a quick thanks to Claudia for the spring time prompt at dVersePoets.

And a big thanks to the rarest of weather days in Austin.

We’ll take more of these anytime. 😉

I hesitated uploading this last image because of someone’s thoughtlessness of letting that bag of trash blow over onto an otherwise beautiful series of images along Austin’s Lady Bird Lake and Hike & Bike area.

It pitiful that people allow themselves to be so uncaring, and yet, thank goodness, it was the only instance of litter among all the clean-landscape images I took this afternoon.

At least that stood out. 😉

There’s a lot of crummy people out there, but there’s a lot more that aren’t…

  1. Beautiful pictures of a beautiful place, Adan. I’ve done a few miles on the path around Town Lake. When I moved to Austin in 1989, I lived in the Pecan Grove RV park on Lamar and Barton Creek Rd. Austin had just started to boom then, and it’s way too big for this country boy nowadays.
    Loved your poem too! Great post!

    • lol! it’s too big for me! but we’re here for a bit, pecan grove rv’s a great location

      we moved to austin from galveston the first time back in ’89 also, how ’bout that 😉

      yeah, very different then, you wouldn’t believe the traffic and congestion here now, we just came back jan after 3 yrs away (Galveston, Vermont, Paris) and brrrrr, it’s a bugger to drive here!

      but the images of what’s here, in the spring at least 😉 is still valid; thanks so much charles, really glad you liked the pics “and” the poem 😉
