the stars at night are big and bright

For my birthday, Drew took me to San Antonio for a quick weekend getaway to see the Alamo, walk the riverwalk and have a nice dinner out. How nice! I always wanted to see if the Alamo had a basement.

Peewee was right. It does not.

The Alamo grounds are lovely – lots of cacti and various vegetation.

San Antonio sure does enjoy its fountains. There were quite a few along the riverwalk.

The riverwalk has lots of restaurants lining it with plenty of outdoor seating.

The water ain’t too pretty though.

We stopped for drinks and queso and this guy would not leave us alone!

After walking along for a while, we ventured out and saw a giant space needle looking building and decided to go up to get a bird’s eye view of the city.

We saw the stadium where the Spurs play. Too bad we couldn’t catch a game.

Then I saw the sweetest thing ever – a Zoltar game! I would have made a wish to be big, but I’m already as grown up as I ever want to be.

Later that night we went to dinner at a quaint little Italian place on the riverwalk where I had the seafood paella. It was marvelous!

Even though San Antonio is only an hour and a half from Austin, it was quite different. Overall, a nice quick trip and a wonderful dinner out!
