A Day with Diana

My friend sent me a message last week asking if I wanted to get together this week. She had to bring her Class B from Austin down to New Braunfels and wanted to see some of the area. So I picked her up this morning and we headed out to River Road for a drive. It is a great drive along the Guadalupe River with about 7 river crossings on a narrow two lane road with great scenery. A weekday drive is much better as it is packed on the weekends with sightseers and people on the way to go toobing. And yes, it is toobing, not tubing, around here. There are cabins and camping places and several RV places along the windy road. We stopped at a couple of them so Diana could check them out for future reference. One place even has treehouses for rent.

It was still too early for lunch so we went on out to Canyon Lake. This is the view from the day use park near the dam. We checked out several places on Canyon Lake and had lunch at the Canyon Lake Marina. It turned out to be a great place and the food was very good.
Back in New Braunfels, I took Diana on a tour of Landa Park on the Comal River and then on to another park which is popular for toobing. This is just one of the many toobing rental places right in town.

Prince Solms Park has a chute you can ride through. This group was all hooked together.

This is just below the chute. Even in April, you can see the toobers out riding the river.

We had a wonderful day together and I’m so glad Diana got in touch with me so I could show her around the New Braunfels area.


  1. Sounds like a good tour with a guide who knows her stuff.

  2. Great tour and the toobing looks like fun.
