We moved to Austin, Texas last August, but I officially moved here in March. At that time, I was still finishing up my studies in Australia. Even though we’ve been living here for a while and we see the lake whenever we drive on I-35, we are quite embarassed to say we haven’t been to the Lady Bird Lake.

Yesterday, we decided to go for a walk at the Lady Bird Lake boardwalk. Parking was surprisingly easy and free along S. Lakeshore Blvd, we parked right next to HI Austin Hostel. We really enjoyed that walk – it was peaceful and quiet, and we got to see the skyline of the city. There were quite a few active walkers, joggers and cyclists, as well as other casual walkers like us, but the path was wide enough for everyone. There were also people out on the water kayaking, fishing and paddle boarding. The scenery was really beautiful overall.

We are quite excited to bring our bikes the next time and explore the whole Hike-and-Bike trail.
