I was in Austin over the weekend to visit family, and she wanted to go to Penn Field, site of a former Army Air Forces airfield (our father was a pilot in WWII, and the family is from Round Rock & Georgetown - and includes the creator of RR donuts, but more about that later!).  

This is such an interesting place to visit at dusk!  Didn't even dream of it having a geocache, too!  Will have to come back and hunt that another time.  I was most intrigued by the Gibson Guitar Private Showroom with great neon hotel and bar signs and guitars - what's it used for??  

The water feature made from two airplane tail fins is really neat, especially in that golden, late afternoon sun - GORGEOUS!  Take the time to come out here - and look into the history too!
