The End Of An Era

The End Of An Era

After a year living in the north side of Austin, my girlfriend and I decided we had enough of the isolation of being so far from the action and excitement of the city. We packed up and moved to a more central neighborhood with the hopes of being closer to the action.

My feelings on the move are bittersweet: we love being less than 10 minutes from downtown, but I am going to miss being so close to nature. Our Jollyville home was on the edge of Great Hills, a 5-mile trail complete with waterfalls and creeks.

I’ll never forget the Eastern Screech Owl who roosted for months outside our bedroom window:

Or the beautiful fawn who we came across regularly in the summer:

The time I realized the deer were so docile that I could hand-feed them:


Or the mockingbirds who swooped down and attacked both the residents and staff during nesting season.

As green of a city as Austin is, I’m sure we will find new subjects around our new house.It’s promising – we already spotted several monk parakeet nests down the street! Stay tuned for more.
