Gunkholing In San Antonio

But first, we’ll start with some photos of our grandkids and our furry kid.  Here are a couple of  pictures of Radek and Kalina learning to skate.  They found Radek some skates at a yard sale for three bucks – cheap skates!!

And here’s Houdini the Katt (AKA Alex) attempting his disappearing act.  How do you stuff twenty pounds of katt into a five pound katt haus?

Now onto the Adventures of the MIM and WA entourages.  Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day with the sun brightly shinning and the temperatures tipping the 80 degree mark so we returned to San Antonio to walk along the Riverwalk once again.  This time we walked the entire two and a half mile loop and then cooled off with some nice iced cold drinks at the Original Mexican Restaurant – the boys had margaritas while the girls sipped daintily on their teas.  Here is a photo journal of our journey around the Riverwalk.

Next we headed off for a tour of the other four Missions having already visited the Alamo, but the first one, Concepcion, was closed for repairs so we started with San Jose.  San Jose was primarily a fortified farm area for the inhabitants with the Mission placed prominently at one end.  Again, less verbiage and more pictures of our tour around the Mission.

Once we finished walking about the grounds of San Jose it was late, we were tired, and Martini Time was upon us so we opted to head back to the barn.  Today is going to be a “down day” while Mike and I take care of some minor maintenance issues on our rigs and Peggy and Judy take care of some household chores.  Do you see a pattern emerging?  Two days of activity with one day off; this tourist “stuff” is tough work, but someone has to do it.

Take Care and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - - -

  1. Aw, I can't believe you didn't do all the missions! They are gorgeous. But, I do know that exploring is hard work and ya gotta pace yourself. :) Glad you're having fun.
