A lovely weekend in lovely Wimberly. The morning was overcast, keeping us cool while I taught about eighty Girl Scouts how to Virginia Reel. The first session was tough, as I had never taught before, but after a quick consult with my enthusiastic helpers, the rest of the session went well. It was wonderful when the first line took off on it's own. People showed up, sort of hesitant, but seemed to have a very good time.

Daughter and I went shopping in town in the afternoon. Wimberley is a young girls shopping dream, as it is packed with shops selling candles, value priced jewelry, knickknacks and perfumed soap. There were a few nice galleries, but we didn't spend too much time there. It started to rain in the afternoon, and we were tired, so back to camp for a girl nap and some porch knitting. The older girls could be heard whooping it up in the river in the rain. What fun, to listen to their exuberance and the rain, and have some time to work on the last bear sweater.

Here he is, hiding the fact that the sweater is missing an arm. It is quite achievable to finish for tomorrow night's deadline.

On the way home, we stopped to take pictures of the silly oil well decorations in Luling. This was my favorite:

To see them all, check the Luling Oil Well Gallery.
