I stayed at the bar for a little bit before I walked back towards downtown to get some wine and food and have a little picnic at the Barton Springs Pool. It's a pool in a little side arm of the Colorado. Part of it is a pool you have to pay for to use but further downstream you can just jump in the river and swim. And that's what I did, once it got dark. The water was nice and cool and there were fireflies everywhere. That's one thing you can't do in San Francisco. Be outside at night, swim and not be cold. Fabulous. And it certainly did make me like this city more.
And there was another thunderstorm at night. I've never heard thunder that loud. The house was shaking. I don't want to imagine riding into one of these storms on my bike. But it looks like my weather luck might run out pretty soon. I'm leaving Dallas on Thursday and no matter how often I check my weather apps, there will be rain and thunderstorms on Thursday. And along from New Orleans to Florida and Savannah, it's not liking better. Rain galore. But I knew what I was getting into with this trip and I'll manage somehow. It's hot, after all, so I won't be cold. Just wet. And wet will cool me down. On the other hand, the weather seems to change by the second and it seems unpredictable. So, I'll stay positive and hope that I'll have good riding weather, wherever I go.
