Part 2: Bob joined me for our San Antonio Hill Country Hikers Urban
Walk in the King William District and along the south Riverwalk to

hike finished at 8:25 p.m. Bob and I walked across the street to La Tuna Grill where we had fish and chips for dinner.
I had a Corona with lime and Bob had a Modelo beer. The grill had the
Spurs play-off game on HDTV. Very good.

Travel Bug out.
