San Antonio Trip

San Antonio

Here we are in beautiful downtown San Antonio! Susan Phillips and I drove down Tuesday and arrived around 4:00. We're staying at the historic Menger
Hotel. Tuesday evening we took a walk around the riverwalk and ate dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe including margaritas. The riverwalk is beautiful and has lots of shops and restaurants. Even though I miss San Antonio I'm still proud of OKC and what they're trying to build in our city.
Later that evening we came back hot and sweaty and went to the pool to cool off.

Yesterday we met my longtime friend Karen Sheldon for lunch at the Alamo Cafe. This was one of our family's favorite restaurants when we lived here. It was a wonderful visit. I hadn't seen Karen in quite a few years but it also seemed like we were never apart. I'm very thankful for our friendship.

After lunch we went shopping in Fredricksburg TX. It's like Guthrie on steroids. Lots of small shops with antiques, furnishings, decor and even a 5 and 10 with all the junk we need but don't need. We shopped until the stores started to close down and then ate dinner at an Italian restaurant called Pasta Bella. I had fettuccine Alfredo with chicken which was delicious. Then we headed back to the hotel. Susan and I had a fabulous time.
Today I'm having lunch with Leslie Laro and Penny Smith at El Chaparral in Helotes. I taught with both of them back in the day and saw them a couple of years ago at Leslie's wedding. It will be great to see them again. Susan is opting to stay here and explore the riverwalk and find the Rivercenter Mall. I'll meet up with her later and perhaps go to the IMAX to see the movie The Alamo and then to the real Alamo and dinner at the Mercado... Whatever our hearts desire. Tomorrow it's back to OKC via San Marcos Outlet Mall woo hoo! :)
