Kayaking Lady Bird Lake

We rented kayaks and spent the morning on the water of Lady Bird Lake. The Lake is a reservoir of the Colorado River so is very much like a river but allows for long paddles in both directions without the current. Plus, there was a quiet little side creek that we meandered out and back.

It was great to get a closer look at all the birdlife and turtles that we'd seen yesterday from the trails. Yes, Andrew got some more great photos.

Austin beats Saskatoon for the number of bridges it has. While I couldn't really find a definitive answer, I counted at least ten on Google maps that cross the river/lake. It was easy to see at least four at one time in the downtown area. There is also a beautiful pedestrian bridge across the main river/lake.
