Kayaking on Town Lake

Today, Ray and I decided to go kayaking on Town Lake in downtown Austin. We brought the dogs with us and they had a blast. It was rather warm the mid-90s. Teddy wanted to jump in the water several times to try and catch some turtles that we saw along the way. All in all, we had a fun time. We rented the kayaks for an hour and saw some of the beautiful sights that Austin has to offer. We will definitely do it again.

After a hard workout and our stomachs growling, we went to the famous Guero's... for some tex mex food. Guero's is located on South Congress....or SoCo, as the locals call it. SoCo is now a lively street with lots of little shops, boutiques, and local eateries. It's got it's own cool vibe. Back to Guero's...I personally do NOT like tex mex food and miss and crave the real Mexican food back home in Cali, but this place is not bad. They have some awesome margaritas that do not taste very strong but hit you like a ton of bricks. Having the dogs with us, we sat outside. Tonight, they had a live band playing jazz music in their patio area and we were able to listen to it while dining. This restaurant is ALWAYS crowded and there is always a long wait. But I think it's worth it.
