|Very hot, humid night with little breeze. Time for AC
In the morning we took the #24 bus into San Antonio (Alamo Plaza) which was a 20 minute ride. By the time we got to the Visitor Center it was a very humid 80 degrees. The down town area is still a bit seedy. ( The first time I was in San Antonio in March 1981 someone tried to steal my purse outside the Menger Hotel)
We walked down Commerce Street through the Main Plaza to see the Fernando Cathedral where many of the defenders of the Alamo are buried. The Bexor County Courthouse is impressive. We then proceeded past the Spanish Governor’s Palace to the Market Square and Farmer’s Market. The area is full of souvenir and trinket shops. We walked back to the Main Plaza where we picked up the Riverwalk headed for the King William Historic District. This is the part of the Riverwalk where boats are not allowed and is home to many mansions and art galleries. It was a very pleasant, but humid walk. Saw many joggers and a few other strollers.
Decided to head back to camp to rescue Pepper after 4 hours in the rig. Tomorrow we plan to take a bike ride on the green way and eat at La Fonda (again recommended by the Bagwells) which is near San Antonio College. (Were going to take a bus to La Fonda today but decided we will drive tomorrow as well as pick up provisions for dinner.)
Bob ordered a pizza at the KOA and I made a salad for lunch. Ate in the air conditioned “adult room”. Went to the pool and met Gerry and Tim from Clearwater, FL. They travel 5 months at a time with their Jeep and have been to many areas more than once. This time they are spending 2 weeks in Wave, an area in AZ run ( and permitted)by the US Land Management where there are apparently incredible canyon vistas. Sounds like fun if you have a Jeep!
Working and taking it easy.
Dinner is pasta with “all sorts of stuff” sauce. 2009 J Lohr cab. Hard to believe we will have only a few more nights of rig cooking!
