Surfing in Austin, Texas

Our son Surfing in Austin
Our son was raised in Southern California and grew up surfing. He and his wife moved to Austin, Texas several years ago. They wanted to stay near the water, so they bought a sailboat and beganĀ  sailing on beautiful Lake Travis. The photo below was taken from their boat.
When NLand surf park opened nearby, Ted took his board out of storage and was once again able to ride the waves. Yes, the top photo shows him surfing in Texas, something I thought I’d never see! I was thrilled when he sent us the photo. By the way,Ted designed and shaped the board he is riding. That’s another one of his many talents. Now he has the best of two worlds. He is able to surf and sail in a city he loves.

I’m in Austin Texas this week visiting our son and daughter-in-law. These beautiful sun flowers were waiting for me when I arrived. This has certainly been a time of travel for me and I’m loving it.
