    1. My family was down there in 1968 when “Hemisphere” was in SanAntonio.we went to San Marcos; rode the glass bottom boat and watched the mermaid show. I was just a kid and I remember what a great time we had.
      Fast forward to 2013; I took my sister’s girl scout troop to San Antonio, then San Marcos. We went to the lake and found out the glass bottom boats still were there but no mermaids and hadn’t been for several years. So disapointed.
      Just recently I was looking at “Texas Highways” magazine and read that the mermaids were back. That’s wonderful news.
      We’ll be planning to make a trip to see them next summer.
