If you're like me, summer is the time of the year when you utilize your extra time off to de-stress and have fun. There is an endless amount of great places to go and things to see during the summer in Austin. I followed my friend Heather around for a day to provide a little window into what I see as a fun, relaxed Austin summer day.
Spending some time close to nature, tending to whatever garden or lack of garden you may have.
On a rooftop in Hyde Park, taking in the view and having some reflective, quiet time.
Heading out for a bike ride.
By now you've worked up a bit of an appetite and it's time for a trip over to Sandy's for some ice cream.
It's always nice to make sure to laugh. Sometimes even at yourself.
Barton Springs for some sun and water time. Upgrade from just a towel to a blanket and some magazines for pro-style lounging.
Nothing like some good 'ol spring water. It's beyond refreshing and a nice diversion from chlorine.
Back home, refreshed and getting ready to head out.
Taking your time to find just the right outfit.
