My Favorite Way to Stay Cool in the Summer


I am lucky to live in one of the most beautiful areas of Texas.  The Texas Hill Country is known for its beautiful rolling hills and sweeping fields of colorful wildflowers in the spring.  One thing you might not know about are the beautiful swimming holes nestled in and around Austin, Texas. 

In honor of the end of summer, I'd like to show you a few of my favorite places in the Texas Hill Country.  The pictures below are of  my favorite Texas Swimming Holes.  If you ever come to Texas to visit in the summer, do yourself a favor, skip the riverwalk and check out some of these beautiful natural wonders!

It looks beautiful. We are going to a wedding in Houston in January and are thinking of spending a few days in Austin. We will check them out.

Pissed Off, if you do go to Austin, let me know when you are going. My daughter lives there and I will try to give you some good recommendations. Would also love to meet up with you if you have time.
