To the Natural Springs for a Cool Down
So as you can see, Barton Springs has a hysterical marker:
It costs only $3 to get in. Mae was free.
Swimming is good!
We walked the long way around, using the ramp for the stroller instead of struggling on the stairs.
We found a spot that had both shade for Mae and sun for me!
It was on a slope, though, so Mae was having a little trouble balancing. This gravity thing is new for her.
Here was our view of the springs. Itís natural water, but the borders are man-made ó and there are concrete stairs for you to get down in the water without diving.
Thereís also a diving board. Kids were lined up to do jackknives and flips and such.
We stayed about two hours, enough to feel the sunshine and cool down but not long enough to get bored. We took Mae in the water, but it was a little chilly, so we just dunked her feet in. She really appeared to like it.
On the way out of the park, I noticed this cute little food stand, so, in keeping with SCF theme, here are the food photos for this post:
We stopped by Central Market on the way home for some wine and snacks for happy hour.
I noticed this shop in the strip mall and thought our photo editor would get a kick out of it. His last name is Wolf.
Texas Hill Country peaches are already in season.
Sarah gets some coffee.
Mae was patient as always! Don't you love her little tie-dye outfit?
See you back at the sister outpost for happy hour in a little while!
