Outdoor Fun

I have been itchin' for some "fun in the sun" and today was the perfect day for it.

Early this morning I started mentally going through my list of places I want to explore. After mulling several over, my final decision was Pedernales State Park.

On a scale of 1-10 this place gets a 10 in my opinion. I will rate it as one of my Top 10 must see destinations for the Austin area.

I was so impressed that I took 150 pics our whole day there. I am posting more than a few of my favs. WARNING: If you are not a fan of photos you may want to skip this section. :-)

I don't know which one of was more impressed with the sand. Sand is uncommon in these parts...

Summer is a "rock hugger" for sure. I don't know what the intrigue is, but she loves rocks of any size or shape...

If anyone has been wondering how I am scaling all those rocks in flip-flops, let me introduce you to my new water shoes. They are perfect for hiking and water play. They are one of my recent splurges and I LOVE THEM!!

Although I came home with sore muscles, scratched up legs, a sunburn and a body that didn't smell so sweet, I would say that it was a perfect day. :-)


  1. Wow! Impressive! I'm still adjusting to the no-sandy-only-pebble beaches around here in Cincy.

    PS...I love the water shoes!

  2. What a lovely park! I love all the water rushing over the boulders. Your husband and Summer were brave to walk through it. I think it's great that she hugs rocks. She feels the energy from the earth.
