Two lovely days in San Antonio. What was envisioned in 1921 as a paved-over storm sewer to manage flooding of the San Antonio River instead became an enchanting “River Walk” due to the vision and persistence of architect Robert Hugman.
Mid-September was a perfect time to visit; relaxed, no crowds and easy walking:
You kind of have to take one of the goofy little “cruises”. Our guide was Demetrio and he shared a wealth of history and terrible jokes. It was perfect.
On an early morning walk, we had the path to ourselves.
Lots of thoughtful arty touches along the way…
Something new to see with each bend of the river.
Lush plantings everywhere and everything so nicely manicured.
The old and the new and the new-made-to-look-old happily co-exist.
Leafy, langorous and verdant, a great escape from the Texas heat.
Next post – where to stay/eat. Unsurprisingly, we did not go hungry…
