As you can see there are lots of different styles of bridges and architecture. It is quite lovely and so serene. There is another section of the river that we hope to tour another day.
After our barge tour, we walked
After all that walking, we were famished and thirsty. Continuing our streak of fabulous Mexican restaurants, that began in AZ, we ate at La Margarita in Market Square...oh my.
After stuffing ourselves with that delicious meal, we walked
several miles back to our car. But, did we come home then...oh no. You see, as retirees we are trying to be cheap conservative. It's Tuesday and on Tuesday at 4:00 admission is free so we went to the San Antonio Museum of Art where we walked several miles viewed their contemporary and modern art collections.
On the way there passed a couple of sights that I want to share with you.
The San Antonio Museum of Art is housed in the former Lone Star Brewery building. What a great restoration and use for such a historic property.
We really did only view the art in a couple of galleries because I was beat by then. Still there were several works that caught my weary eye...
Some works are a bit funky.
Rich was intrigued by this one because it had a Tesla Coil inside that generated arcs of electricity at the top and the bottom of the statue. The range of artworks and media found in modern art is what we love about it.
And some of it is simply lovely.
While others are simply curious...
But here is what I love...the unexpected. This quote by the artist who painted the "curious" work above pretty much sums up why I love modern art...I am in awe of those who can create what I've never seen and could never describe...
Thanks to all of you who continue to hang around here and read my blog. It's been a while since I've mentioned how much I love doing this and how much I appreciate you.
Now, speaking of retired...I'm retiring for the night.
