The Guadalupe River was calm on a recent summer morning as Grace Butler settled into a kayak and got ready to paddle.

The Victoria resident had come well-prepared for her journey. She put on paddling gloves to prevent blisters, had a water bottle to keep hydrated while out under the August sun and was right on time for her reservation with Flow Paddle Co., a relatively new local kayaking business that has filled a void for those wanting to rent a kayak to paddle along the river after Gerry’s Kayaks closed.
