San Antonio, TX, The Alamo and The River Walk

The Alamo and the River Walk are two must dos in San Antonio. The Alamo for the history, of course, and the River Walk cause it's cool!

We managed to do these two things before the current rain/cold front moved in two days ago:

I was not allowed to take pics inside but the outside grounds were more enticing for me anyway.  This building houses the research library:

Stopped for lunch at the Lone
Star on the River Walk.  You can see

Very nice! It was cold but we had a
heat lamp on either side of us;)

Our lunch was a $5 all you can eat pork rib tips!  Came with potato salad and beans.....can't beat
that!  Yummy!
