LOCATION: Austin, Texas     SITE: Lake Travis at Pace Bend Park     DATE: August 2006    DISTANCE: 29 miles

One Saturday morning mom and dad towed the boat to Pace Bend Park to go skiing, they left me at home because there isn't a boat dock at the ramp, so I couldn't get in the boat. When mom and dad was boating around they went down the Pedernales Rive side of the V to see how low the water was. The water was very low so dad had to be careful driving the boat and mom took pictures. Wow, look at the boat slips on land, there's weeds growing around the slips. I hope we get some rain soon. After mom took the pictures dad drove to the Colorado side of the V, so they could go skiing, wakeboarding, airchairing and swimming.

Later in August mom and dad had a day of airchairing on Lake Austin. My parents really like to airchair and wanted to meet other people with the same interest. Dad went on the Internet and did some research on hydrofoiling in Austin. There are two different kinds of hydrofoils an airchair and skyski. Dad found a guy name Al Lewin, who flys his skyski on Lake Austin. Dad e-mailed Al to asked about hydrofoiling on Lake Austin. Al e-mailed dad that he was going to the lake Saturday morning and invited mom and dad to join him at Lake Austin. So mom and dad joined Al and his friends. There were five other people in the boat besides mom and dad. Mom and dad had a great time watching people learning to fly and learning to do different tricks on the ski. Al is a excellent flyer and teacher, he can do many tricks and very patience. Dad took many pictures of their adventure on Lake Austin. Mom and dad had a fantastic time and hopes to join Al on Lake Austin again.

In August my Aunt Louise and my dad have birthdays and they celebrated them together. On my dad's birthday my mom and went boating on Marble Falls Lake. Marble Falls 47 miles northwest of Austin and 42 miles from my house. I' ve visit Marble Falls Lake before and it's a great lake. I had to stay home because there was no easy way for me to get in and out the boat, maybe next time I can go. Mom and dad had a fun time on Marble Falls Lake. Marble Falls Lake has many things to offer.

  • Picnic Tables
  • Swimming Pool
  • Tennis Courts
  • Basketball Courts
  • Pavillion
  • Boat Ramp
  • Shopping Close By
  • Restaurants
The following Saturday my Aunt Louise came out to celebrate her birthday. We went down to our homeowner park and barbecued some hamburgers. As dad was barbecuing mom and I went for walk a long Lake Travis shore line. I enjoy doing this because I can go swimming and exploring. This year is an excellent year for exploring because the lake is low. While you explore you will come across some stumps, of course you have to check it out, and you find things on the ground. While I was exploring mom took some pictures and then we went back to Aunt Louise and dad. I had a great time and I think everyone else did too.
