Totally dissed by the weather

Saturday in Austin. Mid-morning: hot, sunny.

We went to eat at Cool Taco, the quaint RV taco stand that Jose's classmate recently opened up. It is located behind 6th Street Cool Store which has a Bob Marley mural on the western facing wall.

After lunch: hot, still sunny. Dark clouds looming on the horizon.

We were off for an adventurous afternoon of swimming at Barton Springs. However, our destiny changed its course in the blink of an eye. It was thundering and lightning somewhere within earshot. When we arrived at the gate it was practically slammed in our faces. It turns out that they have a 30-minute-thunderclap-closure-countdown policy, i.e. they hear thunder and they close the pool for 30 minutes. Bummer.

Notice the empty waters, people leaving, etc.

We waited around a while and finally decided to throw caution to the wind and take matters into our own hands. We went to Jada's apartment pool and jumped in.

Here we have Jose horseplaying at the pool, which we all know is strictly prohibited!

And then, to make a long story even longer...we went to eat pho at the supposed best pho place in town. I didn't think it was that great, not to mention there was a fly trapped in the sugar dispenser. Grody. Oh, and then we came home and watched Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which apparently scared off Jada. (Hi, Jada, didn't mean to scare you can come and watch Space Nine Deep any time!)

Soooooo, alls well that ends well around here. We still want to go the Barton Springs, though.

To end, a gratuitous photo of Jada's cat beating up on the neighbor's cat:

And giving her the death stare:

My cat really is the fiercest of all. I love your blog. It makes me happy.
