Paddling The San Marcos River

I spent Saturday canoeing the San Marcos river with my son and a friend.  The section we paddled was a narrow, gentle river  that wound its way past high sandstone banks, through cattle farms, and past some big houses.  There were enormous cypress trees, herons, red-tailed hawks and a bunch of turtles who were enjoying the sunshine.   The water was cool as it’s spring-fed, so we spent about an hour swimming in a big pool.  It was my first time paddling Texas water, and we all had a great time.

    Ha! Glad you enjoyed Texas, wish I had known you were in town, would have liked to shake your hand. You saw some of the “purtiest” parts, Central Texas has a few nice areas to get wet. If you pass thru again, shoot me a message.

    I’ll be in the Austin area until the end of March. Let’s grab a coffee sometime.
