This festival is the annual chance for sand sculptors to work their magic on the beaches of South Padre Island while it’s not too not and not too cold.
👉 I’m a sucker for this kind of thing. Hitting South PadreIsland every summer as a kid, I did my best to craft some badass sandcastles. But I must admit now that they were mostly just Hot Wheels race tracks, doomed sea levees, or abstract drip art.
Okay, they built a new Stonehenge near San Antonio. It’s just like the real Stonehenge, but hotter and closer. 🤷🏻♂️
This is brilliant and stupid at the same time. But mostly brilliant.
I think we can all agree that some Spinal Tap is called for here.
In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history Lived a strange race of people, the Druids No one knows who they were or what they were doing But their legacy remains Hewn into the living rock, of Stonehenge
Would you like to spend your weekend in a treehouse high up in the cypress trees with a canopy tour to boot? Or perhaps in a teepee? Maybe being surrounded by gazelles, zebras, yak and emu sounds fun. Or maybe glamping in an Airstream at the beach is your cup of tea. Sleeping in a caboose is a choice. There’s also an old Spanish mission.
Okay, this all sounds like a Dr. Seuss book. I’m tempted to go back and make it rhyme. Maybe another time.
I’m excited about the European pool / spa tour, but you I don’t have to go that far away for a great swimming spot. Right here in Texas we have some more rustic and natural options. I’m officially starting a new series of Texas swimming holes for when summer rolls around again.
