The Chameleon

My tongue is sticky

Eyes look two ways at same time

Mood changing color.

As a young boy, I always thought this bird had a strange name. You know a cock to be a rooster, and then learn a slang term for the word cock, and it all seems so strange.

Whatever the case, the bird itself is very cool looking and one of my favorites. I believe it is geographically located to Peru and the Andes Mountains.

Here is a great place to swim and snorkel in the summer. The water is 72 degrees year round, crystal clear, and teaming with underwater wildlife. This is my favorite pool in Texas because it is natural, made of limestone, and varies in depth from inches on one end, to over 25ft deep in another.

To learn more about the pool, hours, fees,  or it’s history follow this link.

Here are a few photos I took at the pool. I hope they inspire you to visit.

I took this photo of a hibernating bat at Longhorn Caverns State Park. I am not sure if it is a brown bat or a pipestrelle bat.

Longer days, short nights.

Picnics, beach, swimming, and sun.

Relax and unwind.

Passing the sandbar

Rapidly rushing to shore

They come crashing down

Tonight for dinner I have an Indian Sampler plate.

Indian food is so fragrant, spicy, rich, flavorful, and euphoric!

Starting from top left going in a clockwise motion, there is Mutter Paneer which is peas in a gravy of mild spices with Indian Cheese, Baigan Bharta which is smoked and mashed eggplant with onions, garlic, and spices, Palak Paneer which is spinach and Indian cheese, Kadhi Pakoda which is gram flour dumplings cooked Punjabi style in yogurt and Indian spices, Dal Makhani which is black lentils and kidney beans cooked in a buttery gravy of tomatoes, onions, ginger, and garlic, Mutter Methi Malai which is fenugreek and sweet peas cooked in a cashew sauce with mild Indian spices, Basmanti Rice, and Masala Naan bread.

If you have never eaten Indian food you are denying yourself a life’s pleasure.


State parks are the best value and some of the most beautiful places a person can visit. Here is another favorite of mine. This park is named Inks Lake State Park in Burnet, Texas.  You can read about it here.

It has some great animal viewing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing, boating, fishing, tubing, photography opportunities, or whatever your mind can imagine.

Here are a few photos I took inside the park. I hope they inspire you to visit.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my work.
