The San Antonio Pathfinders are hosting a walk in conjunction with the 11th annual Tour de Castroville this coming Saturday, April 2nd. The Tour de Castroville is a “Walk, Run, and Ride” family-friendly event.
The walk route goes by historic homes and landmarks in the pretty little town of Castroville. The picture above shows Doug E. with Rudy and Gayle W. in front of one of the historic homes. This home is the Huth/Jungman House, built around 1855, and the front yard is full of poppies!
The photos in this post were taken by Martin Callahan on the Tour de Castroville walk held in April of 2021. In the next picture Gayle W. is standing in front of the dam in the Old Landmark Inn Complex.
