Our house is near White Rock Lake where Taylor likes to run on Saturday mornings and we also enjoy riding our bikes. To have a 9 mile loop around a lake in the middle of the city of Dallas is pretty great. The lake – like all but one in Texas – is man-made and has a spillway that feeds into a tiny river. Birds, including herons and egrets, like to stand on the spillway and get misted by the fast moving water. You can’t walk out to it because I suppose it’s dangerous but D magazine found a picture of some high school girls in the 1950s enjoying the cool waters of the spillway.
