Jean and I went downtown, to the Riverwalk. We wanted to see the new addition to the river, but we were told you can't walk to it from the river! How sad that was. Why have an extension to the Riverwalk if you can't get to it from the original Riverwalk! We did find out the new area is 2 miles away. To far to walk it for my mother-in-law, and too hot for us today. Downtown temperature was near 97 degrees. So, we went to Casa Rio for a light lunch. I had the Taco salad, which was very delicious, water with a slice of lemon (to cool us off). Here are a few photos I took. Sept 2, 2009.
