Interesting note with this rending of the Joe Pool Lake development:



Notice the lighthouse at the edge of the rendering. Fake lighthouses seem to be all the rage now, especially along the shores of Lake Travis, down here in Ausitn (by fake i mean non-functional lighthouse). I counted at least 3 of them... one located within a super high-end development , high on a hill, above Mansfield Dam and park... and another one within the affluent "Northshore" development between Jonestown and Lago Vista (on the VERY scenic North Shore of lake travis). In the first example, the 'lighthouse' was created out of an old, water tower, that was very much an eyesore. Now its a huge landmark, and very prominent. YOu can see it all the way from here in Cedar Park (7-8 miles NE).
