Floodgates

IMG_1517

I took a walk this afternoon to examine the condition of the Colorado River at the floodgates of Tom Miller Dam.  I started at the dam, and then went down for a loop around the trail at Red Bud Isle.  The Isle was partially flooded, but some of the trail remained accessible.  After taking some photos of the flooded state of the river, I returned back up the hill to end up at the dock across from the Hula Hut restaurant.  It turned out to be a nice walk, and a great evening.

Curtain Theater

IMG_4905

On Richard Garriott’s lakeside property in Austin, there is a replica of the Globe Theater called the Curtain Theater.  A performance of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” was scheduled for tonight, but then the rains came.  The show was cancelled at the last minute, and then the rains went away.  Oh well, what can you do?
