Floating San Marcos

September 12, 2012

After dropping my mama off at the airport last Saturday (and circling back around once I realized I still had her wallet in the car), I drove to work and kept on working straight through the weekend. I’ve been slow to post lately, but especially slow on these long work weekends. I’ve received some really nice feedback that people are actually reading this little blog of mine (crazy!) and I’m feeling a bit more accountable with posting regularly. What I’m trying to say is….I’m sorry and keep coming back 🙂

Let’s get on with the floating, shall we?

There’s just something about being on the water that makes everything else disappear. I love the peacefulness, being in the sun (lawd knows I could use the vitamin d), and getting my nature on. While my mom was in town, we met up with a few of her hometown friends who were transplanted to Texas and took to the water.

See the long green stalks in the water? That’s wild rice. The current of the water made it seem like it was slow-dancing. Even in person, it looked like it had been painted. Very, very cool.

This little swimming hole is near the Texas State University, right in downtown San Marcos. The current was so strong, we hardly had to work at all to move down towards the bridge.

After a little swimming, we rented tubes from Lion’s Club ($7/person. Can’t beat that!) This float trip was a different experience than the other floats I’ve been on–and not just because my group was comprised of 4 ladies over 60 (I should add: 4 intelligent, fun, and strong over 60 year olds) but because the whole vibe of the river was different. Lots of families and not a lot of rowdy groups. It was peaceful.

Thank you ladies for a beautiful day!
