A Diversion of Sorts...

I'm interrupting our normal posts to show some photos of our after-tax season getaway last weekend. We went on a short trip to San Antonio, TX and while there visited the Alamo - which is A LOT smaller than we expected it'd be! Plus, it's right in the middle of downtown which was also another surprise but it's still interesting to visit a place with so much history. We walked along the beautiful Riverwalk area and took a riverboat ride also. There are several beautiful missions just outside San Antonio which we visited including this one - Mission Concepcion. I, of course, had to take a picture of a kitty I saw in a window one day!
We had a fun time in Texas but it's good to be home. Our furbabies gave us quite the welcome when we got home and they are sticking to us like glue to make sure we don't leave again anytime soon!

Loved seeing those old buildings and the River Walk.

Everyone says the same thing about the Alamo;) Glad you got the kitty in the window.

Thanks for sharing your vacation photos! I've never been to San Antonio, but would love to go. That Riverwalk looks beautiful. And I've heard that about the Alamo too.

Great photos...esp. the one with the kitty in the window :)

Thanks for sharing the great photos!! I thought the same thing the first time we went to the Alamo.. exactly the same thing! Surprised that it was right downtown and it was a lot smaller than I expected!! I only went for one riverboat ride, and that was at night.. although it was great, I think I would like to go during the day next time!! Glad you enjoyed yourself!! :)

I'm glad you were able to get away and relax. I would love to get there sometime. Since I know the history of the place, it would be great to be able to walk around and try and imagine what is was like back then. I have seen the canal featured on the Travel Channel...very nice:)

I know what you mean, when I got home from the hospital, the cats went nuts. I am so glad you guys got to get away!

That trip was a nice treat!

Love the kitty photo--you should have that framed--it IS that lovely!! My son went to those places last summer with the band--and his comments were exactly yours--from how small the Alamo was, to how it was in the middle of the city, to how lovely the Riverwalk is. Glad to hear that you enjoyed it as much as he did!

I loved San Antonio when I spent a few days there. The Alamo is surprisingly small for Texas, but it was a great place to visit. I was entranced by the River Walk. Lots of good eating places along it too! Thanks for sharing your visit to that fine place.
