    Spent a few days in Austin and San Antonio. We went to dinner at the Oasis over looking Lake Travis in Austin. The view is simply beautiful. The food was delicious!! Then we went to San Antonio, beautiful city! Loved it there.

    Great pictures. We were in San Antonio once for a conference several years ago and had a wonhderful time. Best dinner I have ever had was at Mortin's and every bar along the riverwalk made the best frozen margaritas I have ever tasted.

    Love the pictures! I've never been to San Antonio, and have always wanted to see the Alamo. Great pictures!

    Thanks! It is really beautiful there. You get an over whelming sense of history and to be able to touch the stone from that time I had goose bumps. Here are some more.

    So glad you enjoyed your trip to this great state. I was just in San Antonio a few months ago. Loved the river walk and the boat ride. Did you see the bldg that looked flat? Amazing and all the ducks. I also Love the Oasis . Nice view. My DS and DIL went to college in Austin and we visited often. Love your picture. Thanks for sharing.
