The Riverwalk, Texas
San Antonio Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
We went back to Riverwalk and rode their much recommended Tour Boats to show us some parts (and some history) of the river. It was 30 minute long but I did not get a good shot of it. Or perhaps did not find a lot of interesting shots. I was really anticipating the night shots because what they did to the San Antonio River area (AKA Riverwalk) is absolutely amazing.It does bloom into a charming place at night!
We were having a hard time looking for a good parking slot that we decided to drive back to the hotel and walk the whole 6+ blocks going to the Riverwalk to take some night shots. These are photos taken on the night of Pacman and Dela Hoya’s DREAM Fight. We were planning to drive 30 minutes away from downtown just to watch the fight for free at some bar but at the end my husband did not like to drive that long after walking around the Riverwalk area for more than 1.5 hours already. We did try to check out bars along the river but no one seemed to be showing the fight in this classy area. (Anyway, we were able to watch it online for free! Woopee!)
Okay going back to the Riverwalk blog...here are some of my favorite photos:
This was literally at the corner of where we entered the Riverwalk strip. We got so excited with the view that we spent 15 minutes here taking photos, when we have a few more miles of even better lighting as we walk deeper into the strip.
For this one, there was too much mood lighting everywhere that the whole place turned into a beautiful red.
