A full day in Austin – springs, a lake and a tiny doorPosted by MomOnMars on June 15, 2012
Earlier this month, we drove down to Austin to drop Twirl off at band camp. We took the opportunity to spend some time exploring the nooks and crannies I remembered from my college days….starting with the sparkling waters of Barton Springs.
After hanging out by the pool, we headed to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, where we attempted to complete the Texas Nature Challenge, but were way more fascinated by this tiny little door – not more than three feet tall – reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, sans the small magic potion vial that says “Drink Me.”
Afterwards, we showed up to redeem our reservations for the bat river cruise on Town Lake. It was way more cool than hanging out on the bridge all night – albeit a tad bit more expensive. The ride: definitely worth it. The bats: not so much.
