Eight TOWN-Austin women, LindaF, Jacque, Judie, Gail, Suzanne, Gloria, JudyA and Anna, kayaked on Lady Bird Lake Wed, June 28, 2017. The water was calm and the temp bearable!  We had good shade along the edge as we kayaked around Red Bud Island. We saw a number of turtles, who were not frightened by us and remained lounging where they were.  We spotted a crane and a red bird that was not a cardinal. Several saw what a first looked like a snake, but turned out to be a floating stick!  Several kayaked to the dam and everyone else continued around Red Bud Island. There were a number of fishermen catching and releasing.  The traffic was light on the water.

Afterwards four of us went to Shady Grove and sat outside for dinner and refreshments. Our conversation was around cooking or not, places that delivered meals pre measured to cook, gardening and the farmers markets.  It was a beautiful evening!

Hope to see you next time on Lady Bird Lake, Wednesday, July 12.  Gail P-C
