Keep Austin weird!

Back in Austin, we continued to proceed fairly randomly, since we were still sick. We wanted to go to one of the many lakes in the Hill Country near Austin for some more recuperatin'.
Despite our best efforts of finding a shaded spot along Lake Travis, the only one we found that suited our purposes also happened to be, uh, clothing-optional. It was a lovely spot, though one school of fish developed a taste for George's calves.
And according to George, the male:female ratio was about 27:1, with me being the 1. Needless to say, I did not feel quite so uninhibited as the men, which seemed to disappoint many of them. That's okay, George knows what he has. ;0)
Later that afternoon, we visited a park in SoCo. Being the music mecca that it is, Austin was quick to honor one of its best and most-missed sons, legendary bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughn. This statue is near the water in a peaceful part of the park.
On our way to dinner, we were driving through neighborhoods imaging that we lived in one of the pretty houses. And what did we see but strange chickens in one of the yards. Actually, they weren't chickens but Silkies. Really cute creatures.
George wanted to take a series of shots of the state capitol at night after reading rave reviews about the view at nighttime. It is indeed a pretty sight.
