Summer in Texas

If you're going to summer in Texas, summer in Central Texas: cold rivers and a drier heat than in some other areas.

My parents are fortunate to live in a higher elevation and on a hill, in addition to that, so they get a nice breeze and a break from the worst temps. But there's nothing like the Guadalupe or Comal when it comes to a true Texas summer vaca.

On the banks of the Comal, getting ready to swim.
Feeding the ducks in the Guadalupe after a train ride.
It takes some a few years to really appreciate a cold river.

Sometimes tossing rocks from the shore is just better.
Drinking a beer in the Comal is hard to beat.
But this comes close.
