Hello Pedernales, its so nice to meet you

The other night we packed a picnic and headed to the Pedernales River for a little family night. With a name like that, doesn't that make you think slimely, mossy and kind of back woodsy.

Touche.

The Pedernales has sloping banks of sand, plunging bluffs with breathtaking stone, and you can see your toes wiggle in the water. Jack pot, right!?! Did I also mention that there were hiking trials and wild animal watching points. We were not fully prepared in a boy scout kind of way for the gold mine that we had stumbled upon. We made the most of our ill preparedness.

After eating our picnic dinner of chicken and apple sausages, a delicious avocado, multi grain chips (Terry family fave), and hot sauce, we mounted up both children and braced ourselves for the short hike down to the riverfront.

We were elated by each new view.



Rock throwing lead to...


Clothes tossing...


To water splashing...


To shell searching...


And it all came together for one refreshing family time together.


Then as we were leaving, I was thinking of all of you that I wanted to bring with us next time. When we go together we will bring bathing suits, towels, sunscreen, and lots of food so we can stay as long as we want. Lets plan a date, okay?
