After lunch on Friday, we took the opportunity to make the most of a beautiful afternoon, and bought tickets for a river boat ride on the San Antonio Riverwalk!
It was a glorious spring feeling day ----the sun sparkling on the water as we made our way leisurely along, listening to our guide tell us about the history and highlights of San Antonio.
We had passengers along with us from as far away as Canada and Washington DC ---and some locals along to enjoy the beautiful day too!
Our guide at the wheel was quite the character and had us laughing and smiling while we observed the things he pointed out to us….and took pictures where we could, except for the woman next to me who couldn't get out of texting! LOL!
Remember the movie “Selena”? This is the bridge from the kissing scene where Jennifer Lopez smooched Jon Seda.
We floated past buildings with interesting histories
Intricate mosaics on beautiful theater buildings ---
Colorful umbrellas waving hello from beneath another bridge ---
Amphitheaters on one side ---
Stages on the other!
((Remember this stage from Miss Congeniality with Sandra Bullock??))
Tall buildings on either sdie ---
Flags flying high overhead ---
Interesting trees growing out of rock walls ---
What a wonderful way to spend the day!
It’s now Saturday afternoon. We have gone to a late leisurely breakfast –had our nails done, eyebrows waxed, mustache removed ---who knew I was this HAIRY!? ---and we plan to spend the rest of the afternoon happily sewing up the scraps!
TOMORROW – BIG TAPING DAY! ((I’m so excited and nervous I can’t begin to tell you!))
Loving my time in San Antonio, and in the back of my mind – counting down the hours until Tuesday when I’ll be headed home to my own bed and family.
Love from TX!
