The temperatures kept dropping and we didn’t want to go below freezing before heading up to Ontario…San Antonio, Texas was warm enough.
This post will take us to February 28th in the catch up post.
We stopped at Fort Stockton RV for one night…a great clean park with good facilities.
This was the only photo we took at that camp. We were very hungry. The campground reviews suggested the on-property restaurant was good; especially the Chicken Fried Steak. Neither of us had ever had this dish. We thought it was delicious and would definitely try it again.
We wanted to be able to leave the trailer and even the truck to go exploring. The KOA San Antonio was highly reviewed and was on a bus route. We booked for a couple of nights with a hold for a third night; they accommodated us. Puck was so happy to be out again.
We got our bikes out and found a trail.
This was a good trail to wander on our bikes. The KOA hosts told us it was 7 miles one way and about 1 1/2 the other.
We rode…both directions to be sure.
We found this serene pond.
And a water fountain.
Turtles sunning themselves.
Pierre watching the turtles.
There was a big beautiful Airstream trailer, being towed by a truck with an Alaskan hard sided pop up truck camper. We had looked at both of these prior to the Escape Trailer…
We took the bus for $1.30 to downtown. The bus stop was just outside of the KOA. The courteous driver told us where to get off and how to get to the Alamo…a well worth visiting historic site.
I managed to get an almost people-free shot.
The River Walk was recommended by the KOA staff and online.
Linda wanted to take a photo of Pierre…can’t help the pose.
We were hungry and a local security guard suggested this place called Cafe Ole. We had the shrimp fajita for two…very good, but the margaritas were great!
We managed to have our server take a photo … the selfie arm could’t stretch far enough.
We had to work lunch off so we continued on the walk…The photo was taken from the audience portion of the stage.
Saw this sculpture of a cattle drive.
We passed the Riverwalk Streetcar Station…no streetcar…just a tourist version of a trolley on rubber tires.
Linda made me post this…all I see is the lunch tummy.
The San Fernando Cathedral.
The tomb of the Alamo Heroes.
The Tombstone of Travis, Crockett and Bowie.
Inside the Cathedral.
Back at camp…we had pizza that they make at the campground and it was warm enough to sit outside and dine. The moon was beautiful through the trees. We did make one mistake and annoyed some ants…
They took revenge on Linda’s foot!
We checked the weather and started the northbound journey.
