Jen and Rob invited us to go tubing with them and their niece, Channing, today. We did our traditional San Marcos River extended float. We go farther downstream past the official take out point where we park a car and trailer ahead of time to haul tubes and tubers back to the starting point. That way we have a 3 hour float.
It hasn’t hit 100 degrees yet this year, so it’s a little unusual for us to go tubing until triple digit temps. But we had a fun time. The flow was unusually swift, so it was more work than your typical lazy float down the river.
This is a shot just as I entered the chute at the rapids. I’ve never turned over before, but this time I did, and ended up losing my hat and sunglasses. My hat was found a bit down river, but my prescription raybans are gone for good. Oh well. But it didn’t dampen the fun.
Can’t wait for the next float!

Sounds like you had a great time and managed to take a great ‘movement’ shot 🙂
Seems like hanging on a moving rope above moving water… nicely done!
Hi melody, we were tubing down the san marcos river.. this shot was right before I went through one of the rapids 🙂 fun day!
thanks sangeeta. It was a really fun ride 🙂
Woosh, what fun! At least you didn’t lose your camera. We once tipped over in the canoe, and my camera fell in, but it was inside several plastic bags inside my backpack – and it was fine! But my husband lost his hat.
That’s a great angle for a shot. One really feels it.
Hi Leora, thanks! yes that was quite a rush through the rapids that day. I can’t wait til the temps top 100 here again — that’s tubing weather!
