Walk Balboa Pier at Newport Beach 020117

I was in Newport Beach on meetings.  I only had one free night, so I decided to export the Balboa Pier. It was a rather long walk from my hotel, so I took a taxi both ways. The Balboa Peninsula Park and Pavilion area are really nice to visit, but surprisingly, they all closed at sunset… except Ruby’s all the way at the end of the Balboa Pier.

I stopped there, had a cheeseburger and shake, then headed back.

It was a really beautiful sunset and a really very peaceful and quiet time of day.


Austin 03/01/16

I was in Austin on business and stayed in the downtown area.  One evening I went out for a walk.  I started at the Omni Hotel, Brazos St at 7th Street.  I walked North along Brazos to the Texas State Capitol.  From there I walked along the Capitol grounds then headed South back along Congress Ave.

I walked for awhile and turned left onto 6th Street.  I walked among the many live music night spots.  I didn’t go into any of them but from the street, I could hear all the music.  It was a fun atmosphere!
