Riverwalk loop in San Antonio

Since the weather was predicted to be hot again yesterday, we decided to head to the Riverwalk in the morning before it got really hot. For those of you who haven't experienced the Riverwalk in San Antonio, you need to see its beauty. I'll see if I can explain it....

The Riverwalk, the Paseo del Rio, is one story below the bustling street level. It is a walkway right along a loop of the San Antonio River which is lined with restaurants, galleries, and shops. Around every bend there are lush landscapes with beautiful flowers, tinkling waterfalls, quiet pools, and relaxing outdoor patios where you can relax or eat.

In the photo above one of the tour boats is coming. In the photo below is a wall where a tree is growing through the wall.

The picture of the coleus above is for Oma who loves coleus.

The next two photos are the Arneson River Theater. It is an outdoor performance theater located along the Riverwalk. The stage is on the north side of the river and the audience sits on the grass-covered steps on the south side.

Ahhhh, that is Doug heading down the steps to go to Casa Rio for lunch! We made it the whole way around the loop and back to our starting point. It was so warm by this time - 94 degrees - so we elected to sit inside in the air conditioning. It was a beautiful morning walk.... The Riverwalk was quiet and peaceful in the morning.... So different from what it is like in the afternoon and evening.
