J and I finally made it to Peter Pan for some mini-golf action last Saturday. I’ve wanted to go ever since we moved to Austin, but I’m not sure what kept us away. The place is charming, in an old, falling apart way. Most of the obstacles need new coats of paint or repairs, and the green is more than a little scuffed. I can’t help but wonder how the place must have looked with everything shiny and new.
The other great thing is that it is cheap. 36 holes are $7, or you can play 18 for $5. The holes are divided into an east and west course, but the east course is much more fun, as there are more obstacles. For some reason, putting a ball through a hole makes the whole game more fun.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that I think we’ll be heading there for one of my birthday outings. This year, I intend to make a weekend of it.
Also: On the recommendation of one of my writing group members, we’ll be going on a 4-hour bike tour of Paris. If we can make it in time, we’ll take the tour on Saturday – right after we arrive. Is there a better way of combating jet lag than this?
