We drove an hour out to Hamilton pool last weekend. As we drove farther into the hill country, our expectations soared. Big trees, rolling hills, vast country-side. We were all wearing our swimsuits and watery hiking shoes.
As we drew closer, we realized our fate. PARASITES IN THE WATER.
Later that week, we went to the Greenbelt, wrapped around with 360 degrees of inner tube - ready to hit the water. As we hiked down into the gorge, our bodies began to perspire and hearts were ready to make a big entrance, saying, "Kowabunga!" into the water.
As we drew closer, we realized our fate. NO WATER.
From now on, I'm keeping an eye on the weather forecast.
And, this week looks like rain. Hallelujah.
