A evening at The Oasis

Oasis 047

On nights like last night, I am reminded of just why I’m so proud to live in this city. 

Austinites: can you believe that we’ve lived here for over a year and never made it out to Lake Travis?  A travesty, I tell you! (No pun intended! Hahaha)

Matthew and I went out to a restaurant called The Oasis last night, which overlooks the beautiful Lake Travis.  The restaurant is quite a touristy spot, known mostly for it’s fabulous views, I imagine (because the food was definitely nothing to rave about).  We sat out on the deck and, even despite the blazing heat and the fact that our drawers were drenched in sweat by the time we left, it was a nice time, and I was giddy with excitement to have discovered such a lovely spot in my own hometown. 

If we didn’t already dream of owning a boat and a lake house one day, we certainly do now!

Here are some pictures from the evening…

  28. okay, i wrote something yesterday and darn blogger erased it, at least i think it did anyways. so here i go again, i think the just of it was:

    this spot is like a dream, glorious landscape and amazing views. i love the colorful brollies overlooking the water. totally takes my breath away....oops, we're not supposed to talk about lack of air anymore are we? um, it takes my eyes on a ride of amazement! how about that? baha! oh, Jenni, you are just beautiful and the photos capture the night effectively. wish i could see it in person but this is almost as wonderful. happy weekend wishes! ♥

  31. I'm in the midst of trying to discover new and interesting places in my hometown, too, so I definitely can relate. It's amazing the little gems that are either hidden or that I haven't made time to seek out that are right next door!

    It is a travesty, indeed! Hopefully I'll make good on my word and start frequenting these places soon :)
