Another Fabulous Stay at the Hyatt Regency Austin!

Last summer my husband and I ventured to Austin, Texas to see the bats…and our son, who lives there. Sadly, the bats didn’t make an appearance, but our stay at the Hyatt Regency Austin was so fabulous we decided to stay there again, and this time, we saw the bats! Any trip to Austin during […]

Fab Photos Friday: The World is Water 2

The World is Water, Part 2. I can never get enough of oceans, ponds, rivers, lakes, seas….just the sight of the water provokes a reaction. It may be calm, wild, turbulent, duckweed …whatever it is, it is lovely. I will be in the Revillagigadoes Islands for the next couple of weeks, diving Roca Partida, Socorro, […]

Funny Things Happened on the Way to Austin

Austin, Texas is one of those places known as “cool”. Austin has always been a cool place to be, whether you are a college student or a Texas politician *(it is the capitol of Texas). It is also a vibrantly active city. The river runs right through downtown (*but it is known as Town Lake, […]

The Sun is Finally Shining in Texas!

After three solid weeks of pouring rain, flooding and storms, Dallas is sunny. For the first time since 2012, Texas is not in a severe drought, which is good, but the rains have cost people in the state both lives and property. Texas can never do anything in a small, reasonable way…if it is going […]

And I’m Back from my Adventures!

What a whirlwind the last month has been! I’ve been to two weddings (one of them was my son’s) and had a major surgery. I’ve either been walking on the beach, dancing, hosting a rehearsal dinner, or recovering. Right now, I am recovering from surgery. A long story short: a MRSA infection several years ago […]

LBJ Presidential Library–BOOMers!

Ever been to a Presidential Library?  Well, for a history buff like me you’d think the answer would be yes….but no.  Not until yesterday when I visited the LBJ Presidential Library at the University of Texas Austin campus!  The Library is celebrating the Sixties (which, you know, makes sense for LBJ), and wow!  Talk about […]

Yep.  I took a road trip from Dallas to Bossier City, LA. In case you don’t know, Bossier City is just across the Red River from Shreveport, LA.  And it has gambling casinos….lots of them!  I am true to Caesar’s Group, so I stayed at The Horseshoe, a very nice resort located on the river. […]

More from Lake Travis

Ah, the longer we stay on Lake Travis, the more I like it!  Lakeway is a wealthy, small town with all the amenities, easy to get around in, and deer are sighted on every drive in the neighborhood.  The only real issue is how low the lake is.  There are boathouses and stairs just sprawled […]
