Day Five

The first half of the day was boring.  Neal drove all day and I slept for almost half of the drive.  Oops.  The drive was the same thing we've been seeing for the past two days.  That was until we got about half an hour out from San Antonio at least.  Then we started to see signs of life again (i.e. something besides desert and cattle).  

We got to San Antonio, checked into our hotel, got ready, and immediately went to the River Walk. Which, by the way, we were smart and booked a hotel right along the River Walk.  It was so gorgeous! We walked around, ate lunch/dinner at Casa Rio, walked around some more, went to River Center, took a river tour, checked out the Alamo, then walked around some more before heading back to our hotel. 

On the river tour.

Oh, and tomorrow is the 178th anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo and [we learned on our tour] that every year they do a reenactment of it at the Alamo.  I think we're gonna try and get up and early and go.  I mean, what are the odds we're here on the same day? Pretty stinkin' cool!

Tomorrow we'll also head to Mississippi to visit a friend and her family who I grew up with and haven't seen since her wedding, six years ago,and Neal has never met.  I cannot explain how stinkin' excited I am to see her!
