The city of San Antonio is famous for two things: the Alamo and the River Walk. Given that they are both in the same part of town, Brandon, Megan, Bree and I took a walk along the sidewalks that hug the canal that weaves through a small portion of the city. The walk is lined with hotels, shops, and restaurants, and at this time of year all of the large trees are wrapped tightly with Christmas lights, making sort of a quaint, green version of Temple Square.
Along the canal tour boats float by (yes, we did actually ride one), and just before sunset you can see park officials walking down the sidewalks, placing tea candles in the luminaries that also line the sidewalks during the Christmas season.
The lights were turned on shortly after nightfall. We spent some time walking along the banks, thinking how easy it would be to fall into the water with no railings or even lips on the pavement (apparently it is a fairly common occurrence – especially near the bars).
After grabbing a caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (ironic, I know), we called it a night and headed back to Megan and Brandon’s.
