Nov 18 - Downtown SA

One of our favorite things to do while in San Antonio is go walking downtown.  We usually get off the bus near the Alamo and walk to the library.  This time we stopped in front of the Alamo and had our photo taken with the Toulon, IL newspaper to send back to Galen's home town.  The paper likes to post photos of where their newspapers have traveled.

They were busy putting up the tree in front of the Alamo today.  The tree and the Riverwalk lights will be lit the day after Thanksgiving.  The Riverwalk got new lights this year - 1.75 million brilliant LED lights.  We'll get photos and post them.

We missed our bus by 29 seconds so went into the historic San Fernando Cathedral.  We hadn't been in there for a long time.  The altar is new, just dedicated this week.

Some of the heroes of the Alamo are buried inside San Fernando Cathedral.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
