The weekend is here, LT! Lake Travis is 96% full with more rain on the way. But hey, we’re not complaining. With views like this, how could we?
You can actually enjoy the same view of Lake Travis when you head over to the Parade of Homes in Rough Hollow this weekend. That stunning view is from the patio of the Laurel Haven Homes villa we wrote about yesterday. The tour is open to the public through May 29th.
On Wednesday, Cathy re-introduced us to 10 of the best dang swimmin’ spots in the Lake Travis area. Whether you’re looking for hidden spring-fed gems tucked in the Texas Hill Country or spacious public swim centers, we have you covered.
Have a great weekend, Lake Travis friends!
