A Cruise on the Riverwalk

The days here are carbon copies of each other, sunny and bright with clear blue skies. The sun seems much brighter in Texas than it does at home. I talked to my sister, Margie this afternoon and she said they have had 52 days of cloudy weather in the last 76 days. The sun shone today for a few hours for the first time in ages. We’ve been really lucky in the weather department since we hit Texas!

Today we didn’t do much until this afternoon when we decided to go into town and take a Riverwalk cruise. As I mentioned a couple of days ago, the Riverwalk area is very pretty. It’s lined with buildings, trees and flowers and is a horseshoe area that flows through downtown San Antonio. It has become more well known as a tourist area in San Antonio than the Alamo. See some photos below that I took on our cruise. The actual cruise boat is a barge as you can see in the photos. Our tour guide “Murray” was a good ole boy originally from Tennessee. He was full of jokes and tidbits as well as interesting information about Riverwalk and the buildings surrounding it. If you’re interested in the history of Riverwalk, click here.
