playing in austin: barton springs

by far my most favorite thing we did in austin was spend an afternoon at barton springs, a gigantic spring fed pool surrounded by grassy hills for lounging. it’s the go-to spot for locals to get cold in the texas heat, and the diving board is a rad little community in itself- everyone from teeny tiny kiddos to really impressive pro-like divers hang around it, taking turns bouncing off the board and pulling out every trick in their pocket as they spin their way into the water. it’s pretty fantastic. *last photo by lou

    I grew up in Austin and Barton Springs was a must in the hot months. One of my best friends from high school got married there in July. It's so hot in ATX that time of year, the ceremony was at 9am up on the hill, then afterwards, everyone changed and swam! It was so fun watching the bride and groom jump off the diving board together. :)
