The Boardwalk

I like this picture of the boardwalk on the hike and bike trail (no boards are actually involved but we call this lovely extension which reaches out over the lake in places the boardwalk nonetheless). That's FFP strolling ahead of me.

There's a Story There

There's a little scene in an Old West Austin garden that seems to tell a story.

Rabid Bat?

I noticed this mural at the Hyatt by the Hike and Bike Trail. Doesn't that bat look a bit, I don't know, off somehow?? Bat watching cruises take off from the docks nearby.

Doug Sahm Mural

This mural between a liquor store and a dive bar on East 11th is definitely Doug Sahm but why he's offering "Lost in Austin" graffiti paint is a bit more of a mystery.

Pop Up Gallery Mural

FFP walks down 8th Street just east of Congress. The abandoned building next to the State Theater may become apartments, office and retail one day. For now it's a pop-up art gallery and a colorful mural has spilled out onto the street.

Veggies and fish --


Loved this combo of fried green tomatoes and cod that we ate at Fixe, one of our favorite restaurants, the other day.

Lotta house, huh?


This huge home is part of Old West Austin. It has a lot of modern elements, though.
