Favorite Austin Hotel Pools

There’s just something about a hotel pool. 🤩 Here are some wet and sunny spots to enjoy around Austin. This picture is of the Austin Motel pool, but many more are listed in the post.

Stonehenge II

Okay, they built a new Stonehenge near San Antonio. It’s just like the real Stonehenge, but hotter and closer. 🤷🏻‍♂️

This is brilliant and stupid at the same time. But mostly brilliant.

I think we can all agree that some Spinal Tap is called for here.

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people, the Druids
No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock, of Stonehenge

Stonehenge – Spinal Tap

The Dark Hedges

Another cool / creepy place in Ireland with a very Harry Potter vibe. ☘️🧙‍♂️

Trinity College Library

This is one of my very favorite spots in Ireland. Serious Harry Potter vibes. 🤓

Cypress Falls Swimming Hole

Another great swimming spot near Wimberly. Perhaps an alternative to the Blue Hole if it’s full or you want to try something new.

Adding to my Texas swimming holes list.

Express Yourself, Ethan Hawke Edition

Ethan Hawke gives an inspiring talk on creativity and how it forces you know yourself, lets you empathize with others, and gives you room to be a happy fool.

In singing our song, in telling our story, in inviting you to say, “Hey, listen to me, and I’ll listen to you,” we’re starting a dialogue. And when you do that, this healing happens, and we come out of our corners, and we start to witness each other’s common humanity. We start to assert it. And when we do that, really good things happen.

If you want to help your community, if you want to help your family, if you want to help your friends, you have to express yourself. And to express yourself, you have to know yourself.

Okay, this song came out in 1983 and has nothing to do with the coronavirus, but the first lines fit anyways. I can say that now that the virus is behind me. 🦠 It wasn’t THAT bad, but it was pretty tiresome. “Sometimes in my bed at night, I curse the dark and I pray for the light. And sometimes, the light’s no consolation.” – Walking on a Thin Line by Huey Lewis.
