Barton Springs Pool was on my bucket list for this Summer. I don't know why I have never been. I think partly because I knew it was a natural pool fed by springs and creatures live in the pool. I get kind of (okay, really) creeped out when things brush up against me in the water.
Last Wednesday evening we decided to go check it out with Ainsmar. Enter Sorrow Number One. As soon as the sun started to go down the temperature dropped and a wind kicked up. The waters in Barton Springs Pool come from the ground. The cold, cold ground. The waters were freezing and it wasn't relaxing at all.
We decided to give it another go on Friday during the day to erase the bad memory of Wednesday night. The sun was blazing, making the cold waters refreshing. It was a totally different experience. I'm so glad I finally went (and went back) to Barton Springs Pool. I'll definitely be going back.
Sorrow number two is that I lost one of my hair sticks at the pool. I had a premonition that I would lose it...but did I leave it at home? No. I've had that stick for a very long time. I said I would cry if Ross lost it and I did cry like a little kid. Oh well.
