The stars at night are big and bright.....clap,clap,clap,clap:

...deep in the heart of Texas!

"Excuse me, I have a question."
"When are we going to see the basement?"
"There's no basement at the Alamo! HA HA HA HA!"
But there are pretty oak trees and original wells (above) and neat knives on display and all kinds of dioramas. The Alamo is pretty cool. Everyone has always said it was so much smaller than they expected, so we weren't disappointed. It is definitely a very important site, and Utah wouldn't be a state without it so, "Thanks Alamo". Neither of us had ever seen it before.
The outbuildings and walkways are quite nice.
Here we are. After seeing the Alamo we found the river walk and had a great lunch at Boudros. Amazing guacamole that they make right at your table.

Here is Clayton and the river.
Some of the store fronts along the river walk.
Clayton again. San Antonio is a neat city. Two of Clayton's siblings have served there, Monica and Tyler. And as for all of the Pee Wee's Big Adventure references, if you haven't seen the first movie, you really should. We both loved it as kids. And Clayton's brothers and sisters used to call him "Herm" for Pee Wee Herman as he looks a bit like Paul Ruebens. A hot sexy version though.

San Antonio looks a lot cooler than I would have expected. What I was expecting, exactly, I'm not sure. Sombreros? Tumbleweed? I'm sure there are countless vaguely offesive stereotypes I was envisioning.

I'm glad you guys had fun! Is your world tour coming to an end yet?
