What We Found When We Took A Drive In The Country. . .

Castroville!!! Contrary to popular belief, this town is not populated by Cubans. Actually, we found this awesome state historical landmark (cleverly named "Landmark Inn"). Here are some pics of the coolness of this place.

The Old GristMill (and Edward)

Huck Finn!!!

Marian practically falling into the river (those rocks were sharp!)

The Medina River Dam - gorgeous (the river of course)

We found yummy blackberries (Edward claims they're called "Dewberries", but I didn't see ANY dew on them). Is it illegal to eat food grown in a state park?

I got tagged . . . sigh.

Just kidding, Aunt S, I really am glad to do this. :)

I'm supposed to list 5 things that no one knows about me. This is going to be difficult. I'm quite transparent. Umm. . .

1. I am still homesick for Puerto Rico. Seriously, you'd think after 5 years I would get over it or something, but no, every day I still have little pangs for "mi patria".

2. I teach private piano lessons. Nobody knows this, because I just started. I just signed up my 5th student, and I have SOOOO much fun. It's exciting to be doing something that I'm passionate about again.

3. I make breakfast for my husband every morning. This is no small feat, since he leaves the house between 6 and 6:30 every morning, and I am SO not the morning person.

4. I jog 6 1/2 miles every day. Yeah, you wouldn't know it. But I do.

5. I have a hummingbird feeder(and 2 hummingbirds that visit it). This is as close to pets as Edward will let me get. I LIVE for these birds! ;)

Okay, now here's the part where I tag someone else. I tag. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sarah Jane (hopefully she reads my blog!)
