I'm in Dallas for a few days, enjoying the gorgeous spring weather in between medical appointments. I always stay at a hotel next to Bachman Lake City Park. I enjoy walking around the lake and the location is fairly convenient to the University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Clinics, which I where I come for healthcare that is not available in Belize. Healthwise, everything looks good, but I do have to come back for a procedure on my left eye. The vision in that eye has deteriorated in the last 6 months to the point that it gets hard for me to read or use the computer unless I make the font pretty large. And the left eye image conflicts with what I see in my right eye, so it pretty much makes me crazy! Problem diagnosed now and a simple(-ish) solution, if eye surgery can ever be called simple. I'll come back to Dallas for surgery and hopefully can get it scheduled before the weather in Texas gets super hot! A few photos below to share the beauty of spring in Dallas.
|Can you see the turtles on the log? I also saw some very large fish in the water. This is the shallow end of the lake where the stream comes in. I can almost see the turtles from the window in my hotel room.
|Texas is known for its roadside primroses - here are lakeside primroses.
|These colors look like autumn! I think this is a Japanese maple.

The weather has been delightful - cool at night and low 70sF (~22C) as the daytime high. Still, I will be happy to get back home on Thursday.
