When I first moved here in 1984 I drove out Lake Travis and truly fell in love with Austin. The view from the area around St. Luke’s church was just stunning. In 1988, I looked at lake lots on Lake Travis–found some for around $80,000 with cute little houses. Recently, I took a ride out on a friend’s boat and snapped some pictures. These aren’t $80,000 cute little houses are they–Here’s a few snapshots of how the other half (well ok 1%) live.
One of the best ways to cool off on a hot summer day is to head out to Lake Travis and take the boat out. This year Lake Travis is extremely low (659′ right now, full is 681′). So if you’re going sailing especially with a full keel watch out for those sometimes islands. This time I decided to just take a few pictures.
