Day 172 - Downtown San Antonio

(Click any photo to enlarge)

And over this way...
Pipe burst
The reason I came to Texas is to take a photography course here in San Antonio, and it begins this afternoon.  I arrived downtown around 10:30 this morning, parked at the St. Anthony Hotel, where the course will meet, and walked all over the downtown/Riverwalk area.  The weather is breezy and in the upper 60's.  It is funny to see the natives here wrapped up in winter coats and jackets.  The tourists have on shorts and flip flops.

I ate lunch along the Riverwalk, avoiding the restaurant with the colorful umbrellas, because flocks of pigeons kept landing on the tables.  I did not want to have to constantly shoo pigeons away from my food.

Thinks she's hiding?
More gorgeous glass
Right now, I am in the lobby of the hotel, working on this blog before the course meets at 3:30, using the hotel wi-fi to post it. 

The next few days will be a bit of a challenge, since the course pretty much runs from 8:30 in the morning until 8:30 at night. Time management will be of the utmost importance!
