Last month, we were in San Antonio visiting my eldest Son. We took a drive down to the Riverwalk. The thing which stands out in my mind about that little trek was the extreme humidity. Probably not the best day to go to such a muggy, humid place. But the scenery is beautiful, and walking along the busy, tourist filled path is quite an experience. For good eats, we stood in line to get into this restaurant:
But the crowds and the long line made it difficult for our Grandsons. So we headed over to Saltgrass instead. While waiting in line though, we had a good view of the tourist ferries.
Our table at Saltgrass was on ground level, so I stepped outside to take this 'aerial' view of the river.
The little barges just keep going by, sometimes seranading visitors with mariachi music.
The Riverwalk is a beautiful place to visit. However, next time I'd much rather visit in the Fall or Winter. I hear it's also very pretty around Christmas with all the Holiday decorations. One little side note: there is an elevator under one of the bridges which we used to go up to ground level. As you approach, the reeking smell of bat guano almost knocks you out! Ugh! But bats are good. They're good tourist attractions as well. There is another well known bridge in San Antonio and one is Austin which is a tourist mecca for bat 'watching'.
