Urbanized Bats?

So we did Austin and I mean we did it.   Sixth St. ‘til 3AM, Stubbs, live music, Rudy’s, Round Rock, rooftop drinks downtown, BBQ, sushi and other great stuffings, watched a UT game with the locals, checked out Lake Austin and Lake Travis…..we did it all.

But I must say the coolest for me was the bats.  Yes, the bats.  This was the second time I visited the Congress St. Bridge to check out the largest urbanized bat colony in the world.  It is a pretty amazing experience and I really wanted Jessica to take it in.  There are 1.5 million of the little suckers inhabiting the 1” expansion joints under the bridge and just around sunset they hit the skies.   

It’s truly an amazing site.  Check it out…  (Note:  Note my video, the Droid deleted mine.)

Yeah that’s right…live music capital of the world.  Austin, Texas.  Have you been there?  If so, you know what I’m talking about.  There are so many amazing live music venues in that city.  And everyone loves Sixth Street. 

Well, we are headed there this week for Jessica’s first time.  So, tune in next week for the adventurous recap.

Side Note:

We knew we would be out of town so we installed a security system.  Some of the features are pictured below.
