The San Antonio River Walk is one of Laura’s absolute favorite places to visit. It has so much to offer. The lights, music, sounds of the river, and all of the history are enough to make anyone want to go there and spend some time. That Christmas song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” sums up when to go to the River Walk–Christmas! There’s so many lights and sparkles that it would make even the grumpiest raccoon happy.
The masterpieces they make at Garcia Art Glass are both whimsical and functional.
Our next stop was the Alamo, because if you go to San Antonio, you should probably take the time to go there. There’s so much to read and discover that it would take all afternoon to go through the entire thing. We made just a quick stop to take in some of the highlights then on to the River Walk.
There’s some pretty good people watching on the River Walk and plenty of places to stop for food. We walked the entire thing a good number of times, stopping only for a quick break to listen to live music, grab a bite to eat, or rest our feet. Toward the end of the evening we thought we’d grab some dinner and got a romantic table for 2 at a BBQ joint (oxymoron, I think) overlooking the water. As we were eating, boats went by about every 5-10 minutes. They were carrying the most jolly of carolers that sang every Christmas carol you could think of. Being from Iowa, we are used to a white Christmas in the cold; not a Christmas with carolers on boats in 70 degree weather. Not complaining of course; just stating facts.
Another day of travel starts early tomorrow. We’re off to Grandma’s house in Harlingen, TX.
More adventures tomorrow…
