Walkabout Two-fer, Part 2 - Wed., May 8

Part 2: Bob joined me for our San Antonio Hill Country Hikers Urban Walk in the King William District and along the south Riverwalk to Roosevelt Park. We started at 7:00 p.m. and headed south from the Blue Star Brewery area along the south Riverwalk to Roosevelt Park. 18 people walked this evening.

You never know what you will see. I like the way these people think. See photo below.

San Antonio River
Most of the people walked past the heron below. He was as still as a statue and no one saw him (except me). He was about four feet from the path.

The Hill Country Hikers walked at a moderate pace tonight, not the "fitness hike" pace of last Friday night. I still had to run to catch up when I stopped to take a photo. Wait a minute! I don't want to be a runner, but I'll sacrifice for a good photo. Jasmine bloomed along the trail so we had pockets of sweet jasmine perfume as we walked.

The temperature was just about right at 72 degrees, but it was rather humid. The good news is there was a very nice breeze blowing so we didn't get too sticky. Total miles for this hike: 4.5.

Total miles I hiked today: 10.7.

Our hike was finished at 8:25 p.m. Bob and I walked across the street from our hike finish to La Tuna Grill where we had fish and chips for dinner. I had a Corona with lime and Bob had a Modelo beer. The grill had the Spurs play-off game on HDTV. Very good.

Tomorrow I start my job at the RV park office! I'm looking forward to it. Everyone is so nice there.

Must get some sleep. I start at 8:00 a.m.
