One of the things I love about forum communities is getting to know people from all over the world.
Although I am not much of a city girl, I live just outside of San Antonio, Texas. No matter where I wander, my heart is here in Texas. When people visit, usually one of the first places they want to see is the San Antonio, Riverwalk. The areas right downtown are usually crowded with tourists visiting the many shops and restaurants. The areas further away from downtown can be pretty quiet and peaceful though. (picture above)
We usually have brief winters and springs, with really long hot summers. My favorite places to run away from the world for a bit are up in the Texas Hill Country areas. When I can though, I like to escape down to North Padre Island. It is nice being just a few hours from the Gulf of Mexico.
I mostly just love spending time exploring out on an old dirt road.
I would love know more about your corner of this amazing planet!
