Rivery Park Walk

IMG_3945

The temperature hit just above 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Central Texas today, so I opted for a late evening walk with hopes of less heat on the path.  I started off from Rivery Park in Georgetown, which you can see from the trail map photo is located in the middle of the Georgetown trail system.  It turned out to be a nice walk along the paved trail, with gentle slopes to climb up and down, and some nice views of the San Gabriel River.

Loving Sunset Walks

IMG_3934

It is that time of year in Austin where the evenings start getting cooler and it makes it nice to get out and walk.  This evening, I started at Ninth and Congress and headed for the loop around Town Lake.  There were a few art installations and groovy flowers along the way.  On my return to Congress Avenue, there was a flock of tourists anxiously awaiting the bats to begin flying out from under the bridge.  And of course, the sunset colors on the city were most beautiful.

Blade Runner 2049

IMG_0072

For fans of the original Blade Runner, they have done a great job of recreating this film series.  The sci-fi world on screen is just magestic.  The flying cars are flawless.  Ryan Gosling is the perfect choice for the lead role, and Harrison Ford holds his own.  My favorite character is Joi, a holographic companion, played by Ana de Armas.  They could have based the movie on her and it would have been wonderful.  Be warned that the running time for this movie is long – I was in the theater for 3 hours with previews and credits – and if you are like me, you may not find yourself a fan of the storyline.  However, this is a must see for the local movie house or IMAX if you have one nearby.
