The Bat cruise

Yes...when I say "the bat cruise" I literally mean real bats. There is a bridge in Austin that has 750,000 to 1 million bats live under it. From March until August they come out from under the bridge at sunset. It is really well known(was on Rachel Ray's show). We decided to take Derek's family on the bat cruise. It is a rinky dink boat that goes up and down the river in downtown Austin for an hour and half. When the bats come out we go under the congress ave. bridge and watch. I will have to say...it was well worth the money and it wasn't really that expensive. It was beautiful weather and we had a blast.

Downtown Austin


Congress Ave. Bridge(this is where the bats are...and the capitol building is located at the end of congress ave.)

You can see the bats in this picture. It is not really clear...but it looks like a swarm of bees.

Here is all the kayakers watching...and there are tons of people on the bridge too.
