We got a little bit of rain today in San Marcos, and it left behind some cool temperatures and a most beautiful rainbow.
Another great Borgeous show! This time at The Marc on the Square in San Marcos. As long as Borgeous visits us in Central Texas, I will turn up for his music. 🙂
Sometimes your most interesting moments throughout the day don’t transfer well to photographs. My sights in the Springs at the historic Meadows Center included a large alligator gar searching for dinner, turtles sunning on a limb, tons of fish swimming in the clear fresh water, a mother nutria shepherding her babies into their den for safety, and a view of the water flowing from the deepest part of the springs from inside a glass-bottom boat. The aquarium on site also allowed me to photograph one of the endangered salamanders. This is a beautiful place that made for an enjoyable afternoon, full of wonder.
Today’s fun was found in San Marcos at the Sacred Springs Powwow. There were some inspirational costumes and dancers in the Powwow Arena Tent at the Meadows Center.
One of the best parts of summer around here is to float one of our beautiful rivers. I returned to the San Marcos River and rented my tube from Lions Club Tube Rental and River Shuttle Service. This trip is about an hour long float and ends at a set of rapids. Super fun!
This has been my home for the last few nights. A cozy hotel just off I-35 in San Marcos.
The San Marcos River is one of the best places for swimming. The water is cool, clear and welcoming. Sewell Park is always filled with fun people who like to soak up the sun, jump in, swim, and float. The river begins just north of where these photos were taken – at the San Marcos Springs or Aquarena Springs. Definitely go for a swim if you find yourself nearby.
I drove down to San Antonio this afternoon, and stopped at Rio Vista Park in San Marcos. It was a beautiful afternoon and there were several kayakers out having fun in the artificial rapids. It made for a great rest stop before continuing my trip to San Antonio.
