San Angelo, Texas- Downtown

San Angelo is home to Angelo State University, historic Fort Concho, and Goodfellow Air Force Base which specializes  in cryptology and general intelligence career fields for Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy.

A part of Lake Nasworthy; a very pretty lake and beautiful parks along the shore.  A storm is rolling in ...

Historic Downtown

The shops were interesting

We saw several bootmakers here

Several bars in town; this looked like a good place to hear some blues.

The store on the left is very popular !

In the pioneer days, this was the place for fun and relaxation.

The downtown has some great murals...loved this one

A famous Texas author

the military history of San Angelo




This church was very pretty



Then there is an issue of sheep everywhere; there are over fifteen in the downtown area; contests are held for the most artistic.  Here is a small sampling. 


This guy has such a sheepish grin!

Thanks for the advise Bob

Loved Frostie as a child





Too much cool stuff in here

Love old theaters. I have enough pictures for a separate post.


So, downtown also has a riverwalk and the the historical fort is a few blocks away.  The weather was getting pretty stormy, so we did not have the time to explore those sights.  We did have time for one more stop before the rain ruined our day.  Check our next blog on the waterlilies in San Angelo.
