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.

Waco Suspension Bridge

IMG_2980

The Waco Suspension Bridge is a beautiful historic bridge that was first opened in 1870.  It was once a toll bridge for stagecoaches, cattle, and humans.  The only other way to cross the Brazos River at the time was by ferry.  Now the bridge is a pedestrian bridge only, and is full of activity on beautiful, sunny days like today.
