Cruising to get in place for the big show.  That’s what they’re all doing.  Getting in place to watch the nightly flight of the bats in Austin, Texas.  Having seen it I know it’s something worth making an event out of.  Or taking someone from out of town to see.  Just get there early if you want a good viewing spot.  That’s what’s smart about having a boat or kayak.  You get a perfectly unencumbered view of the spectacle.

Driving into Austin the night before was so colorful I vowed to head downtown and capture the color of sunset with the downtown skyline as the backdrop.  Not having been here in over 2 years, I wasn’t quite sure of the angle but picked a spot I thought would as least be OK.  Construction fences were there to greet me.  I quickly drove down the road and dove into the next parking lot along the river.  Too thick with too much poison oak.  Strike 2.  Walking along the trail a bit, I noticed quite a crowd of people gathered on and under what I recognized as the Congress St. bridge.  Aha!  Sunset was fast approaching and all were waiting for the bridge bats to awaken.  They put on their nightly show on a beautiful, warm evening.
