San Antonio, Texas - Part Two

Along the River Walk in San Antonio, there are a lot of ducks and this very interesting Black-Crowned Night Heron.

Remember the Alamo! We took a nice tour and listened to some history of a battle that could not be won but fought by men who truly believed in the cause.

The King William Historic District is an area just south of downtown with a couple dozen really big mansions. I took a lot of photos but am only showing the niftiest.

Click the photos to embiggen and see the great details in each picture. The people who built these homes truly were craftsmen.

This one was restored as a museum and we could have toured if we'd only been there half an hour sooner. We didn't feel like waiting another two hours for the next tour.

This is a more modest home that has a black lava rock chimney. Amazing.

Just look at the brickwork detail.
