:: We had a fantastic, relaxing weekend!! Balmorhea was a lot of fun!
:: Balmorhea is a state park about 4 hours from here. They have a spring fed pool that gets up to 30 ft deep, and stays at a temperature of 75 degrees year round. Chris and I met the Arlington Scuba Center there on Saturday morning at 8:00 am. The group did 3 dives on Saturday and one dive on Sunday.
:: It was interesting to watch everything that goes into diving -- it is definitely a process with a lot of things to remember. There were two instructors there, plus four students. There were also quite a few other dive groups there as well. Chris did great and learned a lot -- and got his official certification on Sunday before we left!! He was very excited, and can't wait to dive in Aruba in a few weeks!
:: We had dinner Saturday night at a yummy Mexican place -- Balmorhea is very small, and there isn't much there. The population is 500! The lodge we stayed in was also very cute! It was very nice to get away and have a quiet weekend.
:: Our lodge: El Oso Flojo
:: Balmorhea: State Park
:: This week ahead will be short -- I am off tomorrow, and we are both off on Friday for Good Friday!! Then, we will be staying in town this coming weekend! That will be nice, after three weekends in a row away!!! My house needs a dire cleaning!
:: We are excited, we made it home in time to watch the finale of The Walking Dead this evening!!! Can't wait for that!!!!
