My birthday is tomorrow, so today I made this picture to remind me of the most beautiful ways that my life is blessed. I've felt sadness and heartbreak, but thanks God I've also known joy and unconditional love. Life is good.

Impromptu Portraits: At Deep Eddy

(click any image to view larger)

Deep Eddy is our favorite swimming spot in Austin.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Deep Eddy Pool dates back to the 1930's. You can read more about the pool's colorful history at The water comes from the aquifer underground, the same source that fills Barton Springs Pool, and therefore stays a cool 68 to 72 degrees F year round.

Operated by the City of Austin, it is one of four municipal pools in town. There's an admission fee of $3 for adults and $1 for little people. This plus the cold water tends to keep Deep Eddy fairly uncrowded. Oh, another cool thing about this pool is that Deep Eddy and Barton Springs Pools are the only public pools in Austin that do not use chlorine.

During the summer, Sam and I go to Deep Eddy as often as possible.
