Travel Thursday: Jacobs Well, Texas

I have often spoke of Pinterest wins. Recipes. Bebe advice. Sewing tutorials...
But actually, one of the best Pinterest wins I have ever had was - Jacobs Well.

When Liz came to visit last year, we took a road trip through the Hill Country and up to Austin. One of the places we stopped we had both found on Pinterest. We popped it into the GPS and drove some wee back roads, went the wrong way a couple of times, and eventually came to a wee car park in the middle of some apartments (odd, I know).. But, we carried on, slathered the sunscreen, popped on the togs and followed the path. And wow. We came to a beautiful limestone outcrop in a stream, with a deep blue cave. Like, actually wow.

It was hot as heck, but we all clobbered over the bridge, and climbed to the other side of the rock. And then we had a wee swim. It was a slippery spot, but very lovely. We had a wee explore around, dodged the UT students, and even jumped in the hole. The color was just stunning. It was really a lovely spot if you are taking a drive around that part of the world!

It was a little tricky to get photos, as there were quite a few people around, but here are a few shots I got.

  2. What a crazy find! I'll be honest: that would scare me to DEATH. I have a thing about not being able to see the bottom in water. But it does look beautiful (from a distance, haha!) And how awesome to have found it via Pinterest! I'm usually just browsing fashion and humor.
