San Pedro Springs Park – San Antonio 1/26/2019

The walk started on the San Antonio College campus, wandered through part of the Monte Vista Residential Historic District, and then through San Pedro Springs Park back to the campus.  It was a good walk.  I got carried away on the pictures of houses….

Susan, Joe and Q-Tip arrived at the parking lot the same time we did.
