Austin

A visit to Austin, Texas


The Capital building was beautiful Old water fountain




In the building, there's a mural of the 6 different countries that conrolled Texas over the years (France, Spain, Mexico, Confederate US, US, Republic of Texas) At the Bullock museum


This is the Mountain Laurel seed and seed pod. When rubbed on concrete, the red seed gets really, really hot - there's some kind of chemical reaction. The kids collected them. Waiting, along with a lot of other people, for the bats to fly out of the Congress Street Bridge


A lot of tour boats also came by to see


Those dots are the actual bats, flying out!


Video of the bats flying
