Remember the Alamo

We walked around the Alamo grounds this morning and learned a fair bit about Texas history. Cliff took some photos on his “real” camera, so I just took a couple of snaps on my phone.

Here we are in front of the church that was never actually a church.

Those are smiles in Australian sign language.

Bat watching

There are 1.5 million bars that live under the Congress St bridge in Austin. Some night they all come out from under the bridge in a big cloud of bats and head up the river to eat bugs.

Last night, because it’s still maternity season, we saw quite a few bats, but no big cloud. We waited until after sunset just to be sure, but no luck. It was a nice night to sit outside, at least!
