Austin and San Antonio
|Our second day in
Austin we toured the LadyBird Johnson Wildflower Center, then stopped for lunch at Burger King
and looked at model homes (since Chris sells real estate
in Houston). We ended up back at The Oasis for drinks,
where Lynn and Mary decided to test their skills....
That night we took a dinner cruise on the Lower Colorado River, a lazy evening with a gorgeous sunset and a flight of bats from Austin's famous bat bridge (home to 2 million of the critters).
Sunday was San Antonio Day. Some of the group weren't able to make it, but those of us who did had a wonderful day. Mike, who lives in San Antonio, met us at the River Walk and "walk" is definitely the watchword. What with walking endlessly up and down each side of the river, and crossing over its many arched bridges, we definitely got our exercise this day!
We also visited the Alamo, and took a walk (just 'cause we hadn't walked enough already!) through the King William district, with its beautiful old Victorian homes. It was an absolutely wonderful day and I very much want to go back to San Antonio another day to see more of the city, especially its Missions to see how they compare with those in California.
