Well, we finally got a day of decent weather here in Georgetown…although this morning it didn’t really look like it would be. We got up and Connie did some work while Neil ran a load of laundry. After that he checked the tire that was low pressure the other day and it was low again; so he called Progressive and they sent a tech out to change the tire. Neil took it to a local dealer named Whitestone Tire and they found a screw in the tire which was causing the leak. They dismounted the tire from the wheel, patched it on the inside, and remounted it. Neil brought it home and left it off for a day or so to verify it’s holding pressure. Once that’s verified he’ll call Progressive to come back out and swap the spare off and the normal tire back on.
By that time the weather had started to clear a bit so we decided to go ahead and drive down to downtown Austin and have a hike around Lady Bird Johnson Lake. By the time we got there the sun had come out and we had a pretty decent urban hike of about 4 miles around the lake. After that it was about 1630 so we went to Fado Irish Pub right near where we parked the car and had dinner and some pints o’ Guinness. We then came home, had a shower and have nothing planned for the rest of the evening.
Wild life on our hike was kinda scarce; lots of runners and bikers. We did spot a few things though…some coots on the lake
and a squirrel up in a tree over the path
Finally, right before the end of the hike we saw these turtles sunning them selves on a rock
and some Texas Bluebonnet flowers…Connie really liked these.
It was still pretty cool through; we had a sweatshirt on and our Scottevests and were alternately cool and too warm depending on whether we were in the sun or not. It’s supposed to stay clear for the next 4 or 5 days and also warm up into the mid 70’s so maybe we’ll have some nice weather to do more fun stuff.
