Day 6, Lake Charles to San Antonio

Pulled out of LC at 0650 after a last Southern breakfast at Pitt Grill.  I-10 all the way, mostly at 75 mph (had to - they would have run over otherwise).  Stopped for a quick lunch at Taco Cabana outside of Seguin.  Got into downtown San Antonio at 1245, found our hotel, hopped on their shuttle and headed for the Riverwalk (& the Briscoe Museum of Western Art).   The museum featured excellent works by a variety of artists, most of whom I was not familiar with.  Sandra worked on pictures of some horse head sculptures outside:

Then, it was time to go for a boat ride - in the river along which one walks on the Riverwalk.  Here's the type of boat used:

Bridges abound - just high enough for the boats and riders

Our primary activity while riding in the boat.

Then it was time for that other Riverwalk event - eating!  We picked the Casa Rio because it's a classic place, had colorful shades over the tables, and a reasonable menu.  It was also the closest to where we got off the boat.  Among its main attractions are the "food observers."  We experienced them on our first trip in 1979, when they helped us by testing the salsa.  They're still here.  Watching...

Back to the motel, check in, and get caught up after a 90-degree day (whew!).  Tomorrow we meet a friend at the gun club, visit the Witte Museum, and look for some BBQ.  Total miles for the day was 332, 1537 for the trip.
