Woke up to RAIN (yea!), and cold, and mounds (literally) of laundry.
A perfect day for staying home and to unpack all the madness that constitutes "home from camping."
You'll have to be content with pictures today as I'm in a relative stupor this morning.
A Northern Cardinal party at the magnificent Pedernales bird blind. (Actually, there are two bird blinds now!)
We call it "Bird Church." They have these pew-type things in the blinds and we sit there in total reverence. Just incredible.
This was left at our campsite by previous tenants.
How delightful is that? And a great idea for "something to do" while camping.
I have never in my life seen the falls this dry. I felt sad at first, but then realized that it was a whole new experience being able to walk all through there. So cool to see where the really deep swimming holes are. Normally you can't tell because it's all covered in water.
If you look closely you can see that some little boy did not care that it was January and took a swim anyway! Some other little boy would have too had he not had jeans on. (Damn pants!)

This was only our second trip with the pop-up, and HOLY COW, man, we looooooove pop-up world! Totally different trip than tent camping and I, for one, am not looking back. It's the perfect blend for me. We still spend all our time outside and we cook outside, but sleep ... oh, the wonderful sleep in that cozy cave is divine.
Off to "warsh," as we say in Texas.
