Roadtrip | San Antonio TX. Pt II

Friday, May 30, 2014

My favourite thing about San Antonio was the river-walk.  Talk about European influence!  Each one of us agreed that it resembled the canals of Italy, but was even more spectacular because of the enormous Montezuma Cypress and Magnolia trees growing along the banks in amongst cafes, restaurants, clubs, bars and shops.  It was unlike anything I'd ever seen in Texas and I found it amusing that in trying to give my foreign family a taste of true Texas, we found somewhere unlike Texas at all!

We did however manage to find an authentic American southern- style lunch at a BBQ place called the County Line where we sampled almost every bbq'd meat option they had on the menu, with locally brewed beer.  The restaurant was located (like all the others) along the canal and was the perfect place to watch both people and wildlife :)

Then we set off again, walking around the enormous canal system for two hours, stopping periodically at shops or for refreshments until we reached the river.

It was another truly marvelous day, surrounded by beauty and new adventure.  I could hardly believe all this awesomeness is only an hour from Austin and I know I always say this of every place we visit around here, but: we'll definitely be back again!!
