Must be back in Texas. 😊 Best time of the year here (except spring). Also, way to go, Astros! Yeah the Longhorns had more fans here 🏈 but the ‘Stros are the champs! ⚾️🏆 #armadilloden #austin #texas #beergarden #outdoorlighting #shotoniphone #nightphotography via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CkoCf90pNzo/
Everything is bigger in Texas, apparently including the flags

Sandcastle Days are here! 🏖
Hey ya’ll, the Sandcastle Days festival is coming right up.
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 Padre Island 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.
I’d love to see what the pros can do.
I can’t make Sandcastle Days this year, but it’s officially on my list of stuff to do in Texas.
By the way, I found this festival on a list of Beaches That Are Even Better in the Fall right alongside La Jolla, Dubai, Costa Rica, Aruba, and Greece. So take that, Texas beach naysayers! 🤠
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 historyStonehenge – Spinal Tap
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
Cypress Falls Swimming Hole
Another great swimming spot near Wimberly. Perhaps an alternative to the Blue Hole if it’s full or you want to try something new.
Adding to my Texas swimming holes list.
