We just got back from a nice, relaxing trip to San Antonio (I was there for work). It was a great place to visit, and the riverwalk is super neat to walk along. Our favorite place to explore was the new Pearl district, which is a northern expansion of the riverwalk and includes live/work spaces, cute shops, and a wonderful weekend farmers' market.
We enjoyed some excellent Texan bbq, and dinner by the water, thanks to chowhound.com, my go-to message board for good food.
We also spent much of the time swimming in the hotel pool, and talking extensively about which house we want to purchase in a new development coming to our neighborhood (the floor plans were released on Friday.) Quite excited are we, to say the least!
Of course, I lugged my SLR with me everywhere we went, and so here are a few photos that I took of our trip:
We also try and purchase little pieces of art when we travel, and so we found a tin pig sculpture in La Villita, an artist village, that fit in my suitcase. Maybe it can go outside one day, in my garden? And so ... as always ...
