This past weekend my hubby and I were scheduled to have a date. My in-laws were watching the kids, so at the last minute we decided to take a drive to Austin (Tx). Just what my soul needed.
The views were to die for!
Last year while flipping through a Souther Living Mag I came across this photo. They described this place of looking like somewhere in the South of France, touting it's beautiful blue/green water and blanket of umbrellas. And it was in none other than Austin. I had all but forgotten about the photo when we decided to make the trip. Until we happened onto "The Oasis".
Remember my photography class. It's funny when I landed in such a beautiful place, how all of the rules I learned about telling a story and getting better angles went right out of the window. I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of our surroundings.
This was one of the views from our table, yes the water is that blue!
That's my hubby in the pink, and our table with an incredible view.
As soon as we decided to make the trip the first thing I thought of was this...
While it wasn't better than sitting by the lake basking the gorgeous views it was pretty darn good.
What a refreshing trip!
Hope you each had a restful weekend too.
