Another Art Installation from Donald Judd. Take a walk along the border of the property at The Chinati Foundation to admire these concrete shapes and the surrounding scenery. If you look closely in the next to the last photo, you can see the Marfa Water Tower and the dome of the Presidio County Courthouse. 🙂
Hey, City of Round Rock! I had a good idea involving the use of your downtown plaza. Since the weather has been so beautiful, why not use the outdoor stage for a band like the Urban Achievers Brass Band? You could invite everyone out for a party, get some food trucks, maybe a snow cone making booth, face painting for the kids, and advertise it a bit to insure a good turnout. What? You already thought of that? It’s called Music on Main and it’s going to be a weekly free event for a while with a different band each week? Awesome! Keep up the good work!
I took a short walk around Austin Community College in Round Rock before it got too cold and too dark. The water tower caught my attention at dusk.
I returned to Lakeway again this evening to continue exploring the parks and trails here. The Canyonlands Park is a great place for roaming around. You follow the humming power lines into the canyon area, and then you hike around and get lost. It is a nice series of trails, so don’t tell too many people about our secret. 🙂
Just beneath the water tower in Gruene and under the blazing Texas Summer sun, you will find one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The Gristmill restaurant overlooks the Guadalupe River and serves up typical Texas favorites like the Chicken Fried Chicken and Mashed Potatoes that I had for lunch. It was great!
I stopped in at Gruene Hall this afternoon before lunch to grab a beer and listen to some music. There is a lot of history to be discovered in this place.
