Looks like Spring may be making it’s appearance after the crazy winter storm Texas experienced earlier this week! One of my favorite ways to spend the day outdoors is to go stand up paddle boarding on the lake! If you have your own board, kayak, tube, you can dock off of Festival Beach in East Austin. During peak times and days it can get crowded. But on weekday afternoons there is plenty of space to park and get going. Here are some of the amazing views from that area. Barely anybody out on the water and sunshine to spare. It takes about 20 minutes to paddle up close to downtown for the views.
