Jim and Peri met us at our 5er and we drove to St. Mary's University. The temperature was 58 degrees and cloudy when we arrived. We all debated whether we should take our coats with us and decided against it. After all, the forecast high was 76 degrees.
When I finished signing in, we started following the directions for our walk and came upon the school mascot...a "Rattler," after passing by the Bill Greehey School of Business/Alkek.

Lots of cheerleaders were in competition in the university Alumni Athletics and Convocation Center. We saw girls practicing on the lawn. Sorry the pics of the girls practicing did not turn out well.
We walked past V.J. Keefe Memorial Stadium, the Law Center, Treadaway Hall, Marianist Heritage House, Garni Science Hall, and a cemetery--all on campus. From the University, we stayed on city streets through local neighborhoods.
|Very cool fence finials.|
The nicest part of our walk, in my opinion, was Woodlawn Lake Park. We walked the 1.2 mile trail around the lake and saw...
|Bob, Peri and Jim|
|Lighthouse in the lake.|
|Basilica of the Little Flowers (San Antonio downtown in the haze).|
|Woodlawn Neighborhood Library.|
|Geographic center of Bexar County, Texas.|
|Tiles on front of the library.|
|Dry neighborhood pool.|
|Statue of Santa Maria|

|Bell Tower (smokestack in back shows through arches).|
|Reinbolt Hall (contains Assumption Chapel).|
In addition, the Randolph Roadrunners gave me a free one year membership to their club.
This blog is getting long, so I will continue the day in a second blog.
Travel Bug still writing. (To be continued.)
