Black and white

There were a number of birds at White Rock Lake that, as the daughter of a naturalist, I can confidently identify for you as "the big, pretty white ones that might be herons, but could be something else, too." Regardless of their taxonomy, their coloring made them beautiful to watch against the white water and black rocks.

Unexpected adventure

While on a walk at White Rock Lake, Rebecca and I stumbled upon the old Dallas Waterworks, built in 1911. Although all the old machinery is gone, the outside still looks like it did when it was built back in the day.

There were some ivy covered structure out front. We couldn't tell if they were supposed to be chimneys or if they served some other mysterious purpose.

The original tall chimney still had the original inscribed door.

Spring sure seems to have arrived in Dallas!

On Friday, the Stephens clan came up from Houston to visit. We went to Cedar Ridge, which has glorious trails. The hiking crew was clearly very excited and very photogenic.

Even telephone lines can't stop the sky from declaring God's glory.
