The last few days on the road (I-10 mostly) have been pleasantly uneventful. Many miles, a little rain, and whole lotta Houston. My unofficial odometer tally through the city’s urban sprawl was about 40 miles!
Anyway, back to San Antonio. First stop today was the Mission San Jose, founded in 1720.
The architectural craftsmanship is stunning.
The complex social structures and stable economies that were established here make for a fascinating history lesson.
And what’s a trip to San Antonio without a visit to the Riverwalk?
And a water-taxi ride?
Our taxi-boatman did a great job pointing out the historical landmarks, of which there are many, and kept us entertained with his dry (so to speak) humor.
After a long river stroll, I stumbled upon a street fair
and had my fill of …. street-fare!
Just like the last time I was in this part of the world - two years ago - I brought along a cold front. So cold, in fact, I may need electric hookups tomorrow night in Texas Hill Country where the lows are expected to be in the mid-20’s.
Brrrrr ….. !!!
