Downtown San Antonio

A quick post about a short day. We drove downtown late this morning to get our bearings and to check out the newly opened north section of the Riverwalk which ends at the up and coming area centered with the former Pearl Brewery.

Some shots of downtown...

Glory be! Driving through a decrepit neighborhood on our way to the north Riverwalk we stumbled upon this railyard. And not just any railyard. This is the Southwest Research Institute Locomotive Technology Center!

The entrance to the Pearl and renovations in process on the original 1883 San Antonio Brewing Association building, later known as the Pearl Brewing Company. The modern building to the right of it is the new Culinary Institute of America campus.

From there our Meanderings took us to this lovely neighborhood not far from downtown...love these streets and homes!

After lunch at a Bill Miller BBQ restaurant, a chain with many locations here, we shopped at WalMart for our Thanksgiving dinner contributions. More about all of this in the days to come. We are staying in San Antonio for seven sleeps and have some exciting activities planned!
