Daddy / Daughter Weekend!

I know this looks like a pretty normal swimming pool, but acctually it's not! We went camping in Balmorhea, Tx. A State Park that is very close to the Mexico border. It is known for it's freshwater spring fed pool. The pool is 30 ft deep and at the center of the pool is a spring where all the water fills the pool and fills a lake. They also have canals that run off the pool that irrigate everyones land. It was pretty neat. We scuba dove in the pool on sat. and sun. The water was really clear and there were lots of catfish and turtles. It was neat to feel the water come up out of the sand really. I got my first sunburn of the year. Then we slept in the trailer and blew around all night. We woke up on sunday and it was 50 degrees, raining, and the wind was blowing terribly still.... I wasn't excited one bit about getting wet. Niether was my Dad. But we ate some granola and started dancing around a little bit, and finally we were up to it! We made it. I was freezing cold and it seemed like forever. But we are both officially certified divers! Satuday was really fun and, we cooked out Sat. night and the weather was beautiful. We sat out on out bench and watched the sun go down in the desert. I was fun all around. It was really special time to spend with my Dad. He still treats me like I am his little princess and what girl wouldn't love that! I am still a little more excited about diving in the carribean waters with the love of my life in about 2 weeks. It will be awesome!
