Riverwalk

On Thursday last, hubby and I decided to spend the day on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, well part of the day at least. I have some special photos to share next week, but will give you just a taste of this beautiful area on this Friday at random, sharing with Five on Friday and Willy Nilly Friday 5.

This is looking back toward a street overpass through the beautiful flowers and cypress trees.
Lots of ducks in the water.
Sculpture near the Western Art Museum - remember this is cowboy country!

Carson came to spend a couple of days with us this weekend, and we had a science project to start on to help his mom out.
You can't see all of these, but the idea is the sun to the left and all the planets suspended from the top of the box. Jupiter is the largest. Carson uses an acronym to remember them. They will add some constellations and moons to the box before it's complete, then he has to do a presentation to the class.

This is a huge example of a live oak tree, growing near the Alamo. They tend to take on very mysterious shapes as they grow.

Another one of our cactus has a beautiful bloom. So unusual.

And here's my wish for you this weekend.

Loved this post! I remember so well the Riverwalk in San Antonio. We spent several very pleasant days there in 2006; our hotel was along the waterside, not far from the Alamo. Exciting to look at your pictures, and know I walked all around that vicinity. Loved the Alamo so much. Thank you for sharing.

The Riverwalk is a place I'd love to see for myself someday.

Beautiful photos, Linda. I love the River Walk and so much has changed since I left there in 1973. I think maybe a trip might be in order. Thank you for that closing thought.

The phone company had me in San Antonio a few times. Always checked out the Riverwalk.

To remember the planets; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus & Neptune, I was taught:
"Matilda visits every Monday, just stays until noon", but I prefer:
"Mary’s 'virgin' explanation made Joseph suspect upstairs neighbor."

That riverwalk place is lovely. I was there almost 15/20 years ago and it was nice then. I am sure it is even more lovely now.

I love San Antonio... There are some things I miss about living in Texas. One is seeing the Bluebonnets and other wildflowers near the Hill Country in April.. The other is the San Antonio area... So gorgeous... Can't wait to see more of your pictures.

Love your cactus bloom.
Hugs,
Betsy

Do like you cacti flower - but they are always pretty.

Looking forward to more from Cowboy country, looks interesting! Hey, if you and Carson don't get an A+ for the science project then I think you have every right to feel miffed - looking good!
If you cactus is anything to go by Linda, you're in for a very cheery week :)
Thanks for joining me on my travels this week!

I love the Riverwalk! Spent many an afternoon there! The trees at the Alamo are really beautiful. Of course, you can see many similar ones throughout the south but I love to see the ones near historic sites.
