Around the old homestead, down at the river front...

Still not done with Texas! Mainly because I've been super busy doing things like trying Umami Burger (tasty! but I won't get the original again, beef was a little so so. I'll get the ahi tuna burger instead because wowwwwwww yum) and staying at work late, so on and so forth. So here goes something awesome, something great, something that's going to make me homesick as all get out...

Here's a little background: The town I grew up in is known for being near the headwaters of the Guadalupe and for it's summer camps. It's beautiful (but rather boring for a teenager...) and far from everything. My mom's family started going out there somewhere in the nineteen teens to get away from the summertime hell of Houston and never stopped. Before I was born my parents decided to move out there to their little bit of land and live full time. What a marvelous place to roam while I was a kid! Although I may have spent a bit too much time alone, which has definitely had an affect on my social skills as an adult... But anyway, family time consists of going down the hill from the house and hanging out at the river. And let me tell you, it's absolutely wonderful. Fishing, paddle boating, lazing about on a noodle. Our bit isn't more than waist deep at the deepest but that's pretty perfect for little kids to enjoy and pretend they're being free and independent of adults! I'll just let the completely unedited photos speak for themselves and go into my room and have a little homesick cry.
