Stormy Weather at Red Bud Isle

Doesn't that sound like a great title for a cheesy mystery novel? The weather last Sunday was pretty mysterious, especially when viewed from my vantage point on Red Bud Isle. It's a gem of a little city park, at the dam where Town Lake (renamed Ladybird Lake, but I'm still not used to that) & Lake Austin meet. The island was created by large boulders that were dislodged when the old dam collapsed in a huge flood in 1900. The clouds rolling in over the dam looked rather ominous. Patrick wanted to check out the fishin' (turns out it wasn't so great that night) & I went along to read & enjoy the scenery...
