Papa Rooster didn't have room for his big camera, but he did pretty well with his little pocket size, I thought!

This was one of my favorite pictures--it's of Mrs. E and I enjoying the perfect temps and breezes on the roof of our hotel, and I like the lines, angles and shadows. The only problem I can see with this photo is that it isn't a Dr. Pepper in my hand.

Oh, the many wonderful Tex-Mex restaurants on the Riverwalk! This one even had a mariachi band.

Papa Rooster and I considered this trip a delayed anniversary celebration--since we never can get away on December 20th.

Evening on the Riverwalk...

...and at The Fig Tree, the French restaurant which was our hands-down favorite. (I had Beef Wellington with asparagus and mushrooms, and tastes of Bananas Foster, Chocolate Bombe and Brandy-Poached Pears for dessert!)

Here we are at Texas' most famous landmark--the Alamo! It's a sobering and meaningful place to visit.

And this was the funny little bed-and-breakfast backyard cottage where we spent two nights--and evening and mornings on that delightful porch!

The proprietor served us a beautiful, bountiful breakfast in her charming home packed full of intriguing objects and decorations.

Spring at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens!

A step back in time to Gruene, TX...

And a late lunch at The Grist Mill restaurant there, overlooking the Guadalupe River.

Our last memory of San Antonio is a Sunday morning stroll on another part of the Riverwalk:

See the whimsical flying fish above? (Click to enlarge.)

Looking toward the old Lone Star Brewery, which is now the San Antonio Museum of Art.

On the grounds there...wishing we could stay another week!
