Pedernales Falls

Texas is not all flat and dry; there is lush foliage in some areas, and luckily, those areas happen to be almost in the dead center of the state, where I live.  (I have a fortunate life.)

About a month ago, some friends and I celebrated another friend's birthday by camping at Pedernales Falls State Park.  (In Texan, you say "Per-der-nal-iss," not "Ped-er-nall-iss."  Gosh.  Get it right!)  It's such a beautiful place, and I can't wait to go back, when the weather gets really hot!  Here, look at the loveliness that is Central Texas:

Who doesn't love a good twisted tree???

Here is where we swam.  (Or watched other people swim.)  The shore isn't just dirt, though; it feels more like a beach, with sand and everything!

Bottom line:  If you're in Central Texas, take a drive to Pedernales.  Pack a picnic lunch and eat it on the beach after you go for a swim.  It's lovely.

Thing I'm thankful for: hearing the UT Tower bells peal while I walk around campus
