Beauty of Shallowater

Since we’ve moved here, I’ve had several people ask me why we chose Shallowater. I always reply that we were looking for two things: a small community close to Lubbock and a good school system. Shallowater has definitely provided both for us. As an added bonus, it’s also a pretty little place.

As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder (and you may have to be from West Texas to see it). Not many people run around taking pictures of alleys. But you tell me, do you think Shallowater has some natural beauty? What’s our best feature?

    Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder, but I also firmly believe that–you can find beauty anywhere…as well as in anyone.

    Love your pictures! By the way, I run around and take pictures of alleys, too! 🙂

  2. How BIG is Shallowater? I’m not thinking of moving again but my sister might be, just wondering. She likes small towns.

    • We’re just barely above 2000 but we’re 12 minutes from Lubbock, which is 200,000. Most of the other small communities around Lubbock got swallowed up, but Shallowater still has a good 8-10 miles of nothing in between. We should be nice and isolated for years to come. Send her our way!

  3. Hey, Gary, I don’t know if we’ve met, but you are in my Genesis Pure group. I like your website. If my husband or I can help in any way, please call.

      Hello Vicki. Thanks for stopping by. Unless I am mistaken (and I certainly could be), we met at a table outside of Good Brews while I was talking with Brian Maines. I appreciate your offer. Have a great day.
