Part of the many missions in Texas is the famous Alamo. Originally named Mision San Antonio de Valero. During the Texas Revolution between what we now know is Texas and Mexico, the Alamo was key in the defense of Texas. The Texans held out for thirteen days against the army, hence the saying “Thirteen Fateful Days”. We walked the same ground as such heroes as Jim Bowie and Davie Crockett, whom help defend the Alamo.

We had a lovely time visiting the Alamo and San Antonio, TX. Beautiful sunny day, high in the mid 60’s and not a cloud in the sky. Once we left The Alamo we went to find lunch at The Riverwalk. What a nice addition to a city. Easy to walk to and find. Lots of restaurants and shops. And the ducks and pigeons are not shy at all. While eating our lunch riverside, we had ducks and pigeons walk right up to us for food. They by no means looked starving at all. I’m sure they are well fed by the tourists.
All in all a nice outing. What a clean city. We’ll definitely visit again. Next time we’ll have to do the Riverwalk at night. They have all the trees lit up and you can take boat rides down the river. Nice.
