The Boardwalk Trail at Lady Bird Lake

A view from Lady Bird Lake Boardwalk Trail

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.


Never disappointed at Black’s BBQ

Every once in a while, Mr K and I would crave BBQ. Our solution has always been to make a drive out to Lockhart to have Black’s BBQ and we were never disappointed.

Just yesterday, we spontaneously made a trip there after Mr K came home from work. It was only around 6pm, but they were out of chicken and turkey. We didn’t mind it because our top choices are their beef briskets, pork baby back ribs and Jalepeño cheese sausages.

As if the meats aren’t already to die for, I love their wide range of sides, which included coleslaw (standard & chipotle), potato salad, mexican rice, beans, mac & cheese, and so on. Each serving is only $1.99. You know what, we mix more than 2 types of sides and as long as it fits only your plate, it’s counted as two servings! Totally worth it!

Belly satisfaction every time we drive out here! #blacksbbq #texasbbq #lockhart #sogood
