Another Day in Austin

Today was our 2nd full day in Austin, Texas, and despite a weather report full of rain and thunderstorms, the day turned out surprisingly well.  After a quick stop to get an exterior shot of the Driskill Hotel in the rain, I took another long walk and ended up at Rose Bud Isle park, which ended up having large parts underwater from the flooding.  It wasn’t a total wash though, as the dam above the park was cool sight with all of the water being let go.

After some relaxing in the hotel room, my wife and I headed out for dinner and ended up walking around a bit before waiting for the bats to wake up and fly out from the Congress Avenue bridge.  There are apparently a million of them living under the bridge and every night they fly out to go hunting.
