Zoeller Lane - Sisterdale/Hwy 1376
July 26, 2008 - Guadalupe River
The water level went down from the mid-60s on Friday
night to the mid-40s by Saturday morning. We were all
thankful for the rain we got due to the coastal hurricane
but it wasn’t enough and it wasn’t far enough north to
make a big difference for kayaking.
Gee, what a difference a years makes!!
That has been identified as a Texas Blue Bell even
though they are really purple. I guess whoever named it
didn’t like the “ring” of Texas Purple Bell.
That must have been a really larger cypress tree at one time
A white flower in the area where we stopped for lunch
And a purple thistle
Speaking of lunch, anyone for a daquiri?
(this is what is called “roughing it”
– having to use plastic cups without salt)
Most of the group gathered in a circle for lunch
Sometimes the river is wide and deep
and sometimes it is narrow and shallow
that’s Susan making sure that everyone gets through it
-- a hard right then a left and another left
This is Donna from Houston showing how its done in a canoe
And here’s fellow Boerne resident Claire
There’s a Pablo and Donna
and here is Sandra checking out a creek leading to the river
“Sandra, do you feel like something is coming over you?”
