Last week, I saved two lives by giving blood.  If you haven’t given blood before, it takes about an hour.  The only thing you really have to do is have a good meal before you go.  Unfortunately for me, I did an open house directly afterward.  In the 90 degree heat, that probably wasn’t the smartest thing I have ever done – but hey I’m an overachiever and it all worked out.  I spent some time in Hyde Park, Western Trails and the Woods of Westlake last week.  

Located between the Lost Creek and Parkstone subdivisions, the Woods of Westlake sits along the west side of 360. The Woods of Westlake has a similar feeling to Lost Creek, only with smaller lots.  It offers direct access to the Barton Creek Greenbelt, making it a desirable location.

The Woods of Westlake is within the City of Austin, and is in the Eanes Independent School district.  Its kind of hard to tell what my picture in the left hand corner is, but its of a walking stick I saw on a house.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before, and it was kind of cool.
