Located on the East side of Galveston Island, Beachtown is always one of my favorite places to launch a sunset walk on the beach. The homes are beautiful and if you time things right, you might just have the whole beach to yourself.
My secret place to launch a long hike on the beach is Beachtown. You drive out towards East Beach, turn in towards the condos, and find a place to park. There are beautiful homes, a nice public Boardwalk for beach access, and long stretches of beach in either direction. Today, I hoofed it in the sun out to East Beach and back. It was a great walk on the beach.
Hello citizens of Austin. If you have lost your cuddly lion toy, it can now be found on the South side of Town Lake just before you step onto the new Boardwalk Trail, as some kind soul has placed it on a wall for safe keeping. As a secondary alert, the rains are over for now and sunny weather is predicted for the trail for today and tomorrow.
After my visit to the Mexic-Arte Museum, I struck out on a long walk. I went South on Congress, crossed the Ann Richards Bridge, got onto the Hike and Bike Trail, it turned into the Boardwalk, crossed over Town Lake at the I-35 bridge, followed the trail under I-35, walked up Rainey Street, by the Convention Center, over to Sixth Street, and back to Congress. Of course, I took a few photos of the scenes along the way on this cold and cloudy day in Austin (the sky cleared a little as the day went on). Overall, a nice walk!
I had an event in downtown Austin again today, so afterwards I went for a long walk on the relatively new Boardwalk Trail . These photos are mostly from the East side of the trail (East of I-35). As you can tell, it is still cloudy and a bit rainy in Austin.
