We have been looking forward to this portion of the Loop for a long time.

A beautiful day to cruise and a short day of just under 24 miles. We didn’t even have lunch until we docked. Then Rip was off for a hair cut and to stop by City Hall and pay for our night’s dockage.

We have the dock to ourselves, have electric and are by a park for Cally. Life is good.

The park is quite large, but the highlight is the Spring, which feeds under the city pool to a water fall and then runs to the river.

Hard to see in the pic, but it is a deep hole with beautiful rocks inside.

You cannot get to close to the spring itself

  1. With your little boat you should be able to get up to Silver Glen Springs and anchor. It's beautiful up there. The water looks like you're in the Bahamas. Keep posting...I love it.
