The Sunday Traveler~The San Antonio River

The Sunday Traveler spent her last morning in San Antonio (Texas) along the river. Not the tourist destination of the River Walk in mid-downtown, but a stretch a little farther upstream; this was an easy walk from another attraction, The Pearl (Brewery).

As many times as the Sunday Traveler has been to San Antonio in recent years, I’d never seen the newest additions along the river here at this point. The above photo is part of an installation called The Grotto, made of false wood and concrete. The artist/creator is Carlos Cortes.

Another permanent installation along this stretch are a wonderful school of giant sunfish by artist Donald Lipski; they are illuminated at night from within, but they are just as beautiful during the day.

And there’s a duck or two here and there

It was time to head back up to street level

Until next week.  May the winds always carry you to unforgetable adventures.

    The new addition of RW is beautiful and more quiet. These photos are beautifully captured, Angeline.
    We were at the RW enjoying the walk yesterday.
