Today is the first day of fall. Nothing could be better. To celebrate, I spent a great day at the San Antonio River Walk, new extension. It starts at the old restored Pearl Brewery and extends over one mile past the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) and near the Wittie Museum. What an improvement. The plants and flowers are mostly Texas Natives and the art adorning the entire area is innovative and stimulating. One is pictured. These giant fish extend from cables under the freeway and light up at night. Next time I will go at night for there is even a stretch of the pavement that lights up at night.
If you are in the San Antonio area, don't miss this new extension to the famous River Walk.
There are several good restaurants at the Pearl Brewery including Farm to Table. Everything is made fresh, mostly organic and comes from local farmers. The desserts are AWESOME.
One other thing...the electric-run river taxi takes you through a lock. It is like a miniature Panama Canal. You can use your river taxi ticket for 24 hours.
