Misc Austin

While driving around Austin, we saw this mini Eiffel Tower!

Based on a third separate recommendation, we went for a walk in the botanical gardens of Zilker Park.  Amongst all the flowers which were sadly not in bloom was what they called a "Prehistoric Park". Apparently dinosaur bones were found in the park and this model of what looked to be a Velociraptor was its memorial.

A nearby waterfall.

Our last stop of the day was at Lake Travis and the Oasis.  We heard the views were beautiful and if it were sunny and warmer than 60 degrees with 15 mph winds I might have thought so as well.  But I did snap a few pictures and can see that during an uncloudy sunset, the views would be amazing.
