The First River Expedition

Last night Emily, Abby, and I went sailing down the San Marcos river
together in the raft for the first time. It took us about 40 minutes to go
from Joe’s Crab Shack to the dam and sluiceway across from the River Pub &
Grill, during which time we saw numerous fish, turtles, and waterfowl and
enjoyed the Celtic
drifting over the water from a nearby park concert. We went down
the sluiceway in the raft at the end of the trip, and then did a bit of
swimming in the area while waiting for Kathy to come pick us up. The water
was a bit tamer than I’d expected, but the trip was great fun for all of us.
