Hello My Dear Readers,
As promised, today I am showing you vacation photos, so if you are looking for outfits, you can skip this one. Just letting you know….when I am on vacation, I do not spend much time worrying about how I look. I spend some time beforehand planning what to wear, and just let the chips fall where they may during the trip. I just get dressed and go with it….the point is to have fun, not to pose for blog pictures, so what you see is what you get.
We had so much fun! If you have never been to San Antonio, I highly recommend it for a long-weekend getaway. The trip could not have been better.
We stayed at the historic Menger Hotel in downtown San Antonio. So beautiful:
Our room actually overlooked the Alamo:
We took a little boat ride on the river and of course had dinner along the Riverwalk:
Visited the Alamo of course:
and must say, had the best barbecue I have ever eaten when we hopped off the hop-on-hop-off bus at Augie’s:
Did some shopping at the Mercado:
And later that evening enjoyed a spooky ghost tour, but thankfully, did not see any ghosts:
We are big fans of Gray Line tours, so we signed up for one that went to the boyhood home of Lyndon Johnson, LBJ’s Ranch and the Hill Country. Here we are at LBJ’s boyhood home:
The Texas White House has been restored to its 1963 version, so it was like walking back into history:
The tour also included a stop at the “town” of Luckenbach, which is no longer a town, but has the basics (a bar and a music venue LOL):
Finished off the evening with another dinner on the River Walk and a visit to the San Fernando Cathedral, where there is a free spectacular light show:
So, there you have it! Our little weekend trip was a huge success, and a great time was had by all. As usual, I learned so much. You can ask me anything about the Alamo or LBJ or the history of Texas…and I will understand your question. HAHA But seriously, I do feel like I know a little more about those subjects than I did before I went, because basically I knew nothing, except that there was a battle at the Alamo.
Thanks for looking at my vacation photos. Again, I highly recommend San Antonio if you are looking for a fun place to go.
See you next time!
