In Texas a way to cool off is to float the river. There are a number to choose from; the Guadalupe, Comal, Frio, San Marcus to name a few. It's a fairly inexpensive, relaxing and fun getaway to take in on a weekend. The problem is you have to have water in the river to enjoy the float, something that's been a problem here in Texas the last couple of years. Well, we've received a bit of rain and although the rivers aren't fantastic they are quite enjoyable right now.
