San Antonio, Texas

Thursday: (02/21) We made it through the night in the Walmart lot without being evicted. Breakfast at McDonald's in the Walmart store while we shopped. We continued on toward San Antonio with a stop in Uvalde for a walk. Lunch on the road of some quesadillas. When we got to San Antonio we called a couple of RV parks and stayed at the Yanawana Camp RV Park next to the South end of the River Walk by the Mission San Francisco De La Espada, the first mission in Texas. We took  walk over to look at the mission then drove downtown for dinner and a stroll on the riverwalk.

After we settled in at the RV park we walked over to the Mission San Francisco.




Friday: (02/22) Granola for breakfast. We drove the city streets rather than the freeways to get downtown. We toured the Alamo then visited the Historic Market Square. It’s full of vendors of Mexican items and a couple of Mexican restaurants. We had lunch at Mi Tierra Cafe and Panaderia. A little more walking then Lou and I dropped Dawn off at the Half Priced Book store while I visited REI and Lou shopped for shoes. We decided to extend our stay a couple of more days. Leftover soup with toast for dinner.

Saturday: (02/23) We headed off to Northern San Antonio where we had breakfast at the Snooze Restaurant. Interesting and tasty breakfast. We then dropped Dawn off at a bookstore and Lou bought a pair of shoes at the Birkenstock store. aLou an I then visited Costco where we picked up a prescription. We then picked up Dawn and did some grocery shopping. We dropped  off the groceries at home then went to lunch. Lou and Dawn had BBQ at Bill Millers BBQ. I had a lunch at the China Harbor Buffet. Mu lunch, mf favorite type, was good. Dawn and Lous wasn’t. After a few thrift store visits we went home before sunset, for a change. Maybe we’ll take tomorrow off.

Sunday: (02/24) Granola for breakfast. We relaxed at home today. Lou and Dawn all day. Me until noon when I took off on the River Walk and visited two more of the old Spanish missions, San Juan and San Jose. It was about an 8 mile walk. The San Jose Mission is the biggest of the five missions in SA and in the best condition. The river walk is quite impressive. I think I could like living in San Antonio. Lunch was ham and cheese sandwiches. Spaghetti for dinner. Lou and I did the laundry after dinner. Should be ready to roll up to Austin tomorrow.
