This old house…

This old house is probably a Starbucks or a Walgreens or something by now. This picture was taken in 2008, on what was then the northern fringes of expansion of the Dallas metro area.

In the name of progress

The San Antonio Municipal Auditorium was being torn down to make way for its replacement. Or least part of it was being torn down: it looked like the old main entrance was going to be reused. At any rate, there was a lot going on the construction site, except for our Sunday-morning visit, when wall was quiet.

Two things about San Antonio

the Alamo*
the Riverwalk

To me, the Riverwalk generally conjures up images of Mexican food restaurants by the water and about a million sunburned tourists working really hard at having fun.

There’s this other part of the Riverwalk, though, called the Museum Reach. It goes to some museums (weird, I know) and the old Pearl Brewery. There are not that many people on the Museum Reach, so naturally that’s the part I like the best.

The part I like the best, after this very nice shade structure, I mean.

*Why, yes, I do have the obligatory Alamo photograph! It’s right here.

The floor could use some work

To be fair, though, it’s not just the floor. The roof looks like it needs a bit of attention as well.

But at one time, this was a thriving business. It even had separate entrances for the drug counter and for groceries.
