On Saturday December 30th, the weather was so nice, we just had to get out of the house. Ilona wanted to see the Austin area. What better place to start than the 360 Bridge (or Pennybacker Bridge)? It was quite a hassle to find a parking spot, but once we did, we climbed all the way up to the top. The view was stunning! There was a dj playing some music to top it all off!
She also wanted to see with her own eyes the vast expanse you see in a lot of American movies. This is something we don’t have were I used to live so we drove to the countryside. Philippe made sure we passed some pumpjacks as well. It was cool to see the jacks were actually active. Ilona was also very impressed with the huge highways. Texas is so big and has so much space to build state of the art highways with 4, 5 or even 6 lanes. In big cities, the freeway interchanges are just amazing and jaw dropping!
At the end of the day we had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and to burn off the calories, we strolled Lakeway’s own trail of lights.
