Trip to Port Aransas

Took a trip this past week to Port Aransas with my wife and her dad for his birthday. The drive takes about about 3 and a half hours, but is totally worth it. The water and beach was absolutely perfect. There were no jellyfish or tar, the temperature was around 90 degrees and the water actually felt cold at times with waves that were awesome.

Didn’t get a whole bunch of pictures, seems like that always happens when you are enjoying yourself. But thought I would share some of the pics we took. One picture I wish I took was of where we stayed. We stayed at the Laughing Horse Lodge, have to say it was one of the best experiences I have had hotel wise downthere. It was my first time to stay there, but the owners are very accommodating to all your beach needs. The cottages have grills and kitchens, located just a few blocks from the beach you can make trips back and forth for when you need refills very quickly. The lodge also has chairs and boogie boards  you can use so you don’t have to pack as much. Plus it’s dog friendly! Read more of this post

Congress Bridge Bats

Went downtown the other night to see the bats. If there is one good thing about this heatwave is it makes the bats come out earlier than usual. We got down there around 8:15pm and they were out by 8:20pm.  I tried last year a number of times and they didn’t come out till after dark. More pictures after the break. Read more of this post

Place to Grab Some Food and Drink for the Weekend

If you are looking for a place to grab a nice margarita, sit on the patio, and maybe take in some food. Look no further than this South Austin staple. Matt’s has great margaritas and the tex-mex that you are looking for.   Sit on the patio and enjoy a nice Austin summer evening. If you have a larger party Matt’s is great with several sections of large tables to accommodate.
