Hello Family and Friends from San Antonio, TX,
Today my Girls had waffles perfectly baked on our George Forman grill. Afterward, we two headed for the Alamo and River Walk in downtown San Antonio. We rode on the public transportation bus. After a circuitous route and many minutes, we arrived a block from the Alamo.
We listened to a speech about the February 1836 13-day battle between the 200 defenders and the 2000 Mexicans. The history of the Alamo was presented in a short movie that gave more details. Use the link above for information.
We then toured the restored site and headed for the River Walk (Use link above for information) looking for the KOA-receptionist-recommended Casa Rio Restaurant. We found it and sat at a table along the river to dine on the meal asked for the most. See photos.
Kathleen fed chip pieces to the pigeons on the sidewalk and the ducks in the river.
After the large lunch, we walked along on the River Walk to the end and then back to the mall and then to the bus stop to return to the KOA.
We were told by the KOA receptionist to ask the bus driver if he was going to the KOA Campgrounds because there are two bus routes leaving from the bus stand.
When a bus arrived, Kathleen entered and asked. He said that he knew we wanted to go to the KOA because of our tans. His comment took some time for me to understand until I looked around at our co-passengers and noticed that we were the lightest tanned folks in the bus.
Kathleen used the KOA laundry facilities and I climbed onto the RV roof to professionally apply a duct tape bandage on a small portion of our rubber roof where it has ripped. I will seal it with the special sealant when we get to Leesburg and I can borrow a caulk gun from Kathleen's uncle Dennis.
Tomorrow, we will spend our Interstate 10 time listening to a new book while the 415 miles roll past as we head east toward the Lafayette, Louisiana KOA.
Have a great Wednesday.
Steve and Kathleen
