Our plan was to take 71 to 281 north to Colorado Bend State Park for a hike and some fishing then back west to San Saba. Unfortunately when we were just about to Spicewood on 71, traffic halted. An ambulance rushed by. A helicopter touched down up ahead! Things were not looking good. Then we heard the radio dj mention a bad wreck on 71 that would be a few hours in the cleanup. We turned around. Ha.
Back down 71 to a little ranch road that would connect us to Dripping Springs to another little ranch road back up to 71 and... well you get the point. We went out of our way. About a few hours out of our way: but it was worth it! Because THIS (and actually much more beautiful, but it's hard to capture something so magical with a camera, as you wiz past it in a car) is what we saw:
These photos really barely do the flowers justice. But I hope you get the idea. It's days like this that bring my joy in my life, my marriage, the place i live. A day that could have been 'a bust' became a great adventure. We made it to the park, just briefly but with time enough for a short walk and good conversation. San Saba was fruitful (we were in search of gourds for my husband's artistic ventures) and the voyage was long but enjoyed by us both. These are the good days!
Have you made 'lemonade from lemons' recently?
