I also like to go to my favorite campground at Lake Amistad...Governors Landing...but not in a non-air conditioned car.
I think I have mentioned on prior posts that moving from Austin, Texas to Del Rio was a cultural shock.
Dad had interviewed in Uvalde, Eagle Pass and Del Rio. However, the job offer came from Del Rio. Mother was hoping for Uvalde, Dad was hoping for Eagle Pass and I was hoping they would forget about moving and we could stay in Austin.
One of the things I loved most about Austin was going swimming at Barton Springs, it was cold as the dickens even when the temperatures were in the 100's.
While not Barton Springs by a long shot San Felipe Springs offered a nice place to cool off and make friends.
This particular area along the creek is not a popular location like say by the State Park or San Felipe Lions Park...both of which I have featured on this blog on several occasions...in particular during Easter when you are allowed to camp out for the weekend.
After the deadly floods of 1998 they made this into a park. During the weekdays there aren't too many people here which suits me just fine.
This day it was just me and some friendly ducks. They came up to me hoping I would feed them. Sorry, maybe next time...
I liked her little poofy hair :)
Even Dad's old car seemed happy here in the shade.
Of course there are always those darn people that don't care about putting trash where it belongs, grrrrrrrrrr!!!
Apart from the above two pictures, everything was beautiful. The sound of the water had such a calming and relaxing effect. If I had a strong back and could drag my zero gravity chair by the banks...I bet I could of taken a nice nap.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
