In Hermann Park, there is a small Japanese Garden that you can visit. It is a nice spot and home to several special plants, gold fish, and turtles. I was thinking that it would be great to visit in the springtime when everything is in full bloom.
The Sam Houston Monument in Hermann Park is a pretty impressive sight. The area includes a reflecting pool, the bronze sculpture, and several gardens which may or may not include passing butterflies. When the sun is shining, it makes for a great photography spot.
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.
Yes, today was the day for the fun Austin event that is Eeyore’s Birthday Party. It was a hot and sunny day with temperatures reaching the mid 90s. But that didn’t stop the party goers from having a good time. The park was full of people in costume and people just out to have a great day.
Austin Samba flat out rocks! The Brazilian percussion and dance team is so full of energy. If you can find them at an event, then please check them out. You will not be disappointed.
Did you know that you need Classical Indian Dance in your life? It turns out that you do. Anuradha Naimpally is mesmerizing on stage. Thanks to the Our World Family Music Festival for bringing her to the event!
Beware Ogre! Yes a very fun loving and entertaining Ogre! Shrek the Musical is the production this year at the Zilker Hillside Theater in Austin. Go and check out the characters if you find yourself in the area through August 13th.
Out in the woods of Pease Park for the 53rd Annual Celebration of Eeyore’s Birthday Party. Austin throws some pretty good parties. 🙂
