|Skill with sculling.|
|A mute swan.|
|The Zilker Zephyr train ride.|
|Ooh, must be something interesting in the water below!|
|Two turtles and a fish. Look how clear that spring water is.|
|Just a day out fishin' with the dawg.|
|Bob's walking two feet off the ground!|
|Late afternoon shadows and silhouettes.|
|Barton Springs Pool.|
|What it looked like "back in the day."|
|Wowsers! That's a lot of people.|
|Here's the extent of the construction.|

|The line to ride the train.|
We turned around at Barton Springs Pool and we are now heading back to Lady Bird Lake. Old people, young people, in-between people, walkers, joggers, bike riders, fishermen, dog walkers: that's who was out today.
|Crowds of people out enjoying the day.|
|Many reminders for dog owners.|
|Stevie Ray Vaughn statue.|
|I love this photo...look at the expression on the dog's face.|
|The new Long Center for the Performing Arts.|
Bob had one more trick up his sleeve, though. For dinner, he took me to Magic Time Machine. What a hoot! Don't expect a quiet dinner here. This place is crazy. From the moment you walk in the door you get a feeling this isn't a "normal" restaurant. The waiters and waitresses dress as all kinds of characters: our server was Indiana Jones, we also saw Dracula, Peter Pan, the Red Queen.
Throughout the huge restaurant there are all kinds of rooms and decor. We were in a Mexican-themed room. Some tables were in small, hole-in-the-wall rooms. It's hard to describe, you just need to go if you want a totally different dining experience. And the food was actually good.

And so ended our 120-mile round trip driving day with 12.4 miles of walking and two good meals in restaurants.
Travel Bug out.
