Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Lake Travis - Austin TX- View from Iguana Grill

Lake Travis - Austin TX- View from Iguana Grill

Lake Travis -Austin TX - View from the Iguana Grill.

On Thursday, I had a Mother's Night Out with some local moms in the Lakeway, Bee Cave, and Spicewood, TX areas.  We went to the Iguana Grill on 620 in Lakeway. 

It was hot, but we sat on the patio anyway.  They had misters with fans blowing on us, but it's the view you come for.

With record breaking heat this summer and record draught over a 23 months period going on, there are amazing shots you can get today that you probably won't come near to seeing next year.

Here is a shot from the Iguana Grills Patio.

You see all the green stuff on the "island".  That's called grass. It's foreign to the island and that's because this island doesn't usually see the light of day.  Usually, boats are going through the water on top of these islands without a care in the world.

Lake Travis is more than 30' below it's usual average, and this is bad.  Rain is predicted for the Fall and Spring, so we'll see what happens.  Otherwise, they're going to have to get a lawn mower out there to keep it short!

Donna - I almost had my birthday party at Iguana Grill last year, but thought better of it when I realized how hot it would have been.  I am amazed at how much land you can see there now!  As you mentioned, they are predicting more rain this fall than normal, so I hope it helps.

Hi Donna... I can't get over how low the lake looks!  Is this some sort of all time record low?

Hi Donna,

I have never been to Texas. I love the photo and the restaurant sounds wonderful too! Mom nights can be wonderful. Our temperatures stay fairly mild here. I hope you get plenty of rain soon!

Have a wonderful week!

Donna, a picture does indeed tell the story.  The drought around us here in Austin is incredible, I am sure hoping the rain that has been predicted gets here.  We are on a well and several in our neighborhood have wells also.  While this one is 750feet deep we are still conserving as much as possible like everyone else.

Jason, With the fans and the misters, you couldn't even tell it was over 100 degrees!  I could tell when I took out my extra guac the next day and it was full of water... blah!

Steve, Nope, not a record low.  It hasn't been this low in like 25 years, but it's been lower.

Judy, Thanks for the rain wishes, we need it!

Gail, We got thunder Saturday night, but nothing else.  We were hoping!
