Mark's birthday celebrations continue on into Friday! Mark and I both managed to take a day off to enjoy Austin in the heart of summer. Amazingly, we found something to do outdoors that we were surprisingly comfortable in. We went out and spent a few hours at Hamilton pool. It's a natural spring fed pool with a beautiful waterfall gracing one side. It was just a short 1/4 mile walk from the parking lot out to the pool area. The entire area was shaded with massive trees and the water was just on the cool side.
Under the grotto was a nice size cave where you were able to set up picnics if all the beach area was taken. Honestly, if it were a hotter day, we would have taken cover under there! But it was actually a pretty fair day as it threatened rain while we were driving over. Fortunately, it held off until we made it over to the Oasis for a quick lunch.
I believe we found us the annual location of future Mark Neubauer birthday celebrations!
