A Summer Morning Walk around the Boardwalk

It’s been a busy week for me, so I haven’t had a moment to look through the photos I took from my walk around the Boardwalk around Lady Bird Lake. Now that things have calmed down this weekend, let’s take a peek at one of my favorite places to explore.

My Summer Vacation (2022)

I haven’t taken a vacation in a while, so I decided “Oh why not. I have some vacation days to use.” So for the week of Independence Day, I took some time for myself to enjoy the simple things.

A Summer Morning Walk Around the North Shore of Lady Bird Lake

I have not explored every part of Lady Bird Lake yet. This morning, I added another part to my list: the north shore near Austin High School.

A Summer Morning Walk Around Waterloo Park

The final place I visited on Friday was Waterloo Park in downtown Austin. I’ve been wanting to check it out ever since it opened.

A Summer Morning Walk Around Hemphill Park

Continuing on my trip around central Austin, I stopped by Hemphill Park. While I’ve been in the area before to check out Spiderhouse, the Ballroom, and Arcade UFO, I’ve never actually explored the area.

So let’s do a little exploring.

A Summer Morning Walk Around Hyde Park

This morning took me to three different parks: Central Park in Hyde Park, Hemphill Park, and Waterloo Park.

Since I took a number of photos at each place, each will get their own dedicated park. So let’s start with my trip to Central Park.

A Summer Morning Walk Around Mueller

After another rough week of getting my sleep pattern back under control (unsuccessfully), I decided to get out of bed and head on out to somewhere again. I decided to revisit the Mueller area this time. While I’ve been here before, there was some other places I wanted to check out this time.

A Summer Morning Walk Along Lady Bird Lake

I had a bit of an off day yesterday, which probably lead to my trouble with sleeping. I woke up at 5 in the morning unable to go back to sleep. I had the day off of work, so I figured maybe I should grab my new camera and get out. So I did.

Dream: Cookies

My brother and I are driving to the mall because he has to get cookies before the next episode of Saturday Night Live. I ask him why, to which he responds by saying a line supposedly from a cookie related sketch from the show. I still have no idea what he’s talking about.

We park at the mall. I walk toward the entrance when I realize I forgot to close the car door. My brother also reaches into the car to take the faceplate off the car radio. He leaves the faceplate in the seat and takes something else behind it. The car has an open roof, so I ask him if he’s sure about leaving it. He responds it’s fine.

We enter the mall which happens to have a few cookie stores right next to each other. The first is a kiosk selling ice cream sandwiches. The next is selling typical mass produced cookies. I direct my brother away from them to a third store that sells fresh, made that day cookies.

We look around at the various pastries, including cakes, ice cream cakes, and cookies. Everything is sold in individual slices or bundles. I’m trying to decide which bundle of cookies to get.

I finally decided on a bag of peanut butter cookies. I’m looking around at everything else. The place is busy and some of the aisles are narrow. I reach my arm out with the bag of cookies to get around someone. My arm barely goes outside the store perimeter which sets off an alarm. I apologize to a nearby worker.

Then I woke up.

(There was a party earlier about winning a free Power Rangers toy but that’s all I remember about that.)
