Harold and I rented a canoe from Zilker Canoe Rentals yesterday. I’d say we paddled for an hour or so. We paddled out through Barton Creek and into Town Lake. On the way, we could see the bottom of the creek and turtle masses. Once out in Town Lake, we had to dodge all of those super healthy people in their single seat competition row boats. It’s really nice to get out and do stuff. I’m beginning to realize that I’m going to have to be resourceful in finding things for Harold and me to do.
Before we reached the end of our excursion, Harold asked me if I liked ice cream. I said yes. He invited me for a frozen custard at Sandy’s. Man, talk about the most awesome ice cream treat I think I’ve ever had. I’m still kicking myself for not having tried Sandy’s sooner. I’ve been in Austin almost ten years and I’ve driven by Sandy’s a gazillion times. Next I’ll have to try their hamburgers.
It just so happened that there was a small congregation of Harley-Davidson owners sitting on one of the picnic benches. Harold and I walked over and agreed on a Heritage Softail that we thought was the best looking. Harold told me that he wants a Harley one day. He’s a good kid. He makes A’s and B’s, gets embarrassed when I ask him about Lindsay (girlfriend) and is really inquisitive.
