Float the River

IMG_8069

It’s been a pretty busy summer, and one that’s heading into an even busier fall, and I have been in desperately-needing-a-vacation mode for weeks now. My actual vacation this year will be a ten-day trip back to Maine over Labor Day weekend, but this week I took Monday off from work to drive down to float the San Marcos River with a couple friends as a sort of mini-vacation. A vacation preview, if you will.

It was perfect.

The sun was hot, the water was cool.
Where we floated the San Marcos River was wide and clear, and moved us along at a leisurely pace.

Also, turtles. Lots of turtles.

Around the end, the river opens up in a wider area near a park.

You can choose to disembark here…or go down the ‘tube chute’.

(Guess which one we chose.)

We swam for awhile, cooling off nicely before walking back to our car.

What an awesome August day.
