San Antonio and the Alamo

Sunday morning we set off on a four-hour drive to San Antonio. We had a break at Brady for donuts and coffee. We arrived at San Antonio at 2pm and headed to the Mexican markets for a couple of hours while waiting to check in to our room at the Courtyard on Marriot. After checking in we headed to Landry’s on the river walk for dinner. We had yet another huge meal and then decided to walk it off by walking along the river walk to our hotel. It was so pretty with all the Christmas lights and decorations.


The weather was warm and perfect for a stroll before bed. Day two we all headed to the Alamo after a Mexican breakfast in a well known Mexican restaurant. There is some much history in this place and it is not hard to imagine what it was like in days gone by.
After the Alamo and a bit of shopping at the river centre, we headed back to the hotel for an afternoon siesta. A cruise on the river was followed by dinner at another Mexcian restaurant right on the edge of the river. The best nachos ever. After dinner, we strolled back to the hotel at about 9.30pm. Tomorrow we head for the outlet malls at San Marcos buts a whole other story.
