lake austin and the weather

On saturday a bunch of people celebrated Pam's birthday on a party boat on Lake Austin. The trip was on again, off again because of threatening weather, but ultimately we decided to brave the rain anyway. I was glad we did, because I got a bunch of cool pictures of Lake Austin and the 360 Pennybacker bridge in the fog and rain. The weather was much more interesting than what you'd normally expect in june (sunny and hot).

Because of the rain, soaring was cancelled all weekend so I didn't get to fly. If this rain keeps up it might be too wet next weekend too, which would be disappointing. But I'm getting ready to take my written knowledge test in preparation for my private pilot license, hopefully I will complete that this week.

My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary yesterday. If I had planned things better I might have been able to be there, but the cost of a plane ticket was out of range. My brother has just returned from his round-the-world trip and is staying with my parents for just a few days before he leaves for an internship in Prince Rupert.
