Today is Steve's birthday. Since he has been in San Antonio for a few weeks, Helen flew in on Saturday to help celebrate. While I was out at Potter's Creek, they were hitting the mall and their favorite restaurant, Cheesecake Factory. Today we headed down to the San Antonio Riverwalk to see a few of the sites. When we started out, it was warm and projected to hit 80 degrees but it was overcast. Sunday's are a great day to hit the downtown area because you can often find parking without resorting to the parking lots which have gotten a lot more expensive over the last few years. We parked about three blocks away and walked down past the Alamo to the Hyatt Hotel which has a nice walkway down through the hotel to the Riverwalk. There are lots of plants and water features.
For all of you sitting in the frozen north, we have flowers blooming along the Riverwalk! And outside tables at the restaurants. I love this kind of winter.
There are still twinkling lights in the trees and I also spotted this Christmas wreath which one of several decorating another building. The red "balls" are cactus buds.
