All aboard!

Zilker ZephyrZilker and Barton just might be the busiest places in town today. The swings were in constant use, the grills were fired up, and people were everywhere except in the water. This is a picture of the Zilker Zephyr rounding the final bend before it slows to a halt and boards new passengers. The miniature train is freshly painted to greet the new season. This attraction is ostensibly for children, but I saw many adult couples seated on the upright benches who did not appear to be supervising anyone younger. Sno-cones in the more lurid colors were especially popular refreshments. Today was a good day for kites, and the butterfly kites were especially handsome. Many are still stranded in trees from the recent kite festival, and they’re still colorful also. I had never been to Zilker on a Sunday, but I’ll certainly return.

    Why was no one in the water?

    I’m looking forward to getting back to Austin on Tuesday and plan to swim at Barton Springs Wednesday evening.
