  • Austin Secular Hub Gathering for swimming, snacking, and chatting

    Marilyn Harris is inviting CFI, AHC, ACA, ESOA, etc. folks to a swimming party at her place in Wimberley. What to expect: (Extremely kid friendly. Well-behaved pets also welcome.) Attendance of 20-40 likeminded great people including families and kids. Swim, walk into town (5 minute walk to quaint shops), canoe, rope swing, fish, and just hang out! Dress comfortably for being outside. What to bring: • drinks and/or snacks to share We’ll have lemonade, water, ice tea, and a few sodas to start, plus ice, cups, plates and silverware. Please bring any additional drinks you’d like to see, adult beverages fine. There’s a grocery store nearby, so show up and then run out to the store if you want to add to the party food/drinks. (No glass down by the water, but away from the water and in cups any beverages are fine.) • swimsuit, towel, flipflops or water shoes, inflatables, fishin’ pole, a canoe or kayak and paddles (Sunscreen is not needed due to shade, but if you want to walk around you’ll get dappled sunlight.) Directions from Austin (it takes an hour) Head south on Mopac. Take 290 West, and stay to the left at the “Y” in Oak Hill (continuing on 290W). In Dripping Springs (about 20 min./14 miles from the “Y”), take a left on Ranch Road 12 towards Wimberley. There is a light here, and you’ll see the Dripping Springs water tower. In about 14.4 miles on Ranch Road 12, as you get into town, you will need to turn left on Mill Race Ln. You’ll be close when you see a Dairy Queen on your left and a Brookshire Brothers grocery store. The next light is River Road. Stay straight at that light, but immediately after the light, move to the center lane and signal to turn left at the very next opportunity, which is a tiny street named “Mill Race Lane.” It is just before you cross the creek, so if you cross Cypress Creek, you missed it. After you turn left on Mill Race Lane, take the first right into “Harris Property.” Inside the property, you can park in the field to the right, or look for parking near the Pavilion, which is about the third structure on the left.
