Damage to Echelon building

The damaged Echelon building off of Hwy 183 in the Arboretum — some a-hole crashed a plane into it a week or  two back aiming at the IRS office.  Tragically, he hit his mark and killed one man that worked there.   Thankfully all the others in the building made it out ok — it could have been much worse.    The camera was running out of battery, so this was the only shot I was able to take before it conked out.   It’s a bit obstructed in this shot, but the big hole where the plane hit is at the bottom of the building just to the right of the post of the highway sign.   Very sad.

March sail

Our first self-portrait with the new camera.   Out for a chilly Saturday sail on Lake Travis.   This photo was taken on our way back from Arkansas Bend.   The lake is nearly full again (678′).  Now we just need warm weather.  When we got back to the marina we saw Teri and Jim, who were spending their first weekend on Island Time at their new slip on E-Dock.   Yay, more people to play with!
