Tropical Paradise in The Heart of Austin


No Comments

3

Lake Austin Spa is an oasis on Lake Austin in gorgeous Austin, Texas! Catch it on a warm Spring or Summer day and you’ll have an almost tropical experience you won’t soon forget.

With crystal blue waters, the lake looks positively enticing as you sit and relax by the pool or on the patio in what can be the blistering heat of the Spring and Summer months.

I personally think this is a fabulous photo shoot location for aspiring models and actresses who are needing new headshots in an uplifting environment. I love the interior design, and the background of the water is just fabulous!

Lake Austin Spa Resort is tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It has been ranked the #1 Resort in Texas & the Southwest by Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards.

Tucked away in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, our all-inclusive luxury spa resort offers a truly unique experience, where we cater to your well-being and provide a sanctuary for rest and renewal. – website

Wonderful Things From The Pharoah’s Tomb

Tutankhamun Artifacts

I was recently at an iconic exhibition held at The Texas Museum of Science & Technology... “Tutankhamun: Wonderful Things From The Pharoah’s Tomb”.

Skybok produced this 1-minute video profile of it! (see below)

I’ve always been fascinated with ancient Egypt. (There’s a great documentary on Netflix now, search for “Egypt” by BBC Films). Here are some more photos from the museum’s exhibition showcasing exact replicas of the artifacts discovered in his tomb. (A nice website on the exhibition with historical questions answered here). Also, check out 8 surprising facts about Tutankhamun.

Austin birds

Taken downtown Austin!

There are a lot of grackles (the “great tailed grackle” and known by some as “the devil bird”). Grackles are a “colonizing” bird and gather in large flocks. They have been migrating north and west from south Texas and Mexico.
