Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Lake Austin - Wakeboarding Pictures

Lake Austin - Wakeboarding Pictures

Lake Austin is a constant level lake, so even though Austin TX is having a very bad drought right now, there is still water in the lake. We usually go to Lake Travis, but all the boat ramps on Lake Travis are closed because the water is low there. Lake Austin is really just a "river", but history calls it a lake.


We finally had a cold front yesterday. It was only 96 degrees instead of 105, so we took a lunch break and headed out. I had not been on the boat since I was 7 months pregnant with Landon, and the last time I wakeboarded was even longer than that... but it was almost like riding a bike. 


I was hesitant at first, but then started edging back and forth in the water. I didn't dare try any jumps as it had been way too long ago since I tried that!


Here are some pictures that captured the fun...


This is me concentrating really hard.

This is me with the Austin 360 Bridge behind me.

Hanging on for dear life...

 What a great leg workout when you bend down...

And, of course, I observed many of the For Sale signs in the area and checked out the inventory and surrounding properties...

Instead of hanging onto dear life, you look like a pro to me, girl. That's so cool that you could take cool lunch breaks like this. You should do it more often.

Gary, You're welcome.

Brandon, I want to go more, but life gets in the way...

Loreena, We all need a break sometime, huh?  We were out for only an hour and a half, which is avery respectible lunch break.  I wouldn't be able to do an all day thing or I'll have too many clients wondering where I am.

This looks like great fun Donna and that is one of my favorite bridges right there in Austin of all time.

Looks like a great afternoon break! I miss my Austin days, but wouldn't trade them for my nice cool days and morning hikes up Snow King mountain here...
