Bob had texted to tell me he had a surprise waiting. When I walked in the door at home, Bob was making his yummy Chicken Enchiladas for dinner. The table was set and he had made a salad as well. We started out with chips and salsa. That was so sweet of him to surprise me with dinner. I love his cooking. Thanks, Bob! After dinner, we hung out for a while because we didn't need to be downtown until 7:00 p.m.
Tonight our Volksmarch started at historic VFW Post 76 on the Museum Reach of the River Walk. There is a new Cigar Deck there and Volksmarchers had the deck reserved to register walkers when they arrived. Eighty-nine people came out to walk with us on this 73-degree evening. The start window was 5:30-7:00 p.m.
Our friends Susan and Darren Medlin were working at the registration table until 7:00 p.m., so we met them there. We decided on the 10k walk this evening. The 10k walk goes into the downtown portion of the River Walk, past the San Fernando Cathedral and Bexar County Courthouse, then returns to the VFW Post (7k). We added on the Museum Reach of the River Walk to The Pearl for 10k total. It's one of our favorite city walks of the year.

Good night all.
