Part I, in which Wordamour drives to the Crossings in Austin for a National Writing Project Rural Sites Network Resource Development retreat. The idea? Writing project teacher-consultants doing interesting site work at rural sites across the nation come together to begin transforming this work into a resource available for other sites to adapt and use.
Some photos from the Crossings, a lovely zen-like environ outside the city:
The walkway to the dining hall:
The best scones I have ever eaten in my life:
The infinity pool. That’s Austin in the distance.
The hot tub. Haven’t tried the pool or the hot tub since I got here; hoping this might be in my future tonight.
The kitchen garden, where all our delicious healthy meals begin. The chef was out there harvesting this morning but I didn’t have my camera.
