San Antonio!

We took a short drive (45 min.) to downtown San Antonio.  We found a public parking lot ($5 for the entire day) just a couple of blocks from the Alamo.  The Alamo itself looks pretty much the same as it did 18 years ago.  However, the area surrounding the Alamo sure has changed with all the shops, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, etc. . .

We had to get a picture of the Emily Morgan Hotel – we stayed there YEARS ago when we lived in Laredo.

On to the River Walk!  This was the best part of the entire day.  We absolutely love this place.  It’s amazing to walk along the river with all the beautiful landscaping and realize that you’re smack in the middle of the downtown of a large city.

We had lunch at the oldest restaurant on the River Walk.  Very good food and decent prices.

We took one of the river boat tours when we first got there.  It was so worth it!  Our “captain” and tour guide explained that the water is only about 4’ deep, so if you fall overboard and feel that you need a life jacket, just walk over to the boat and he’ll be glad to hand you one! 

Had to get this picture of the Tower of the Americas.  This is where Rick took Janice and her parents for dinner to celebrate our engagement in 1986.
