After the CWVFF conference ended (in March…sorry we have been busy!), Dad and I went to pick up a car so we could get to the different tourist things that we were going to see during the next 2 days. It took about five minutes to get to the rental agency from our hotel with a shuttle. Once Dad got all the stuff figured out, we drove away and took the wrong turn (the GPS told us to) and went a long way away from where we wanted to go so finally we stopped and checked the GPS and realized that we had it set for the wrong place. When we got back close to the hotel, there were roads below us and above so we couldn’t tell which exit to take so we took the same wrong exit many times . We could see our hotel below us but we couldn’t get there. We finally decided not to rely on the GPS and we got to our hotel pretty quick! (about 45 min.)!
Sunday morning we attended a large Baptist Church that had a choir and orchestra. Here are a few pictures about other things we did after church and Monday before we flew out:
Mom and Dad in front of the San Fernando Cathedral. This Cathedral is in downtown San Antonio and when it gets dark they have a laser light show on the front of the cathedral about the history of Texas. We didn’t want to stay there till the evening so we didn’t see it.
One of the highlights was going on the Scooter Power Tour! The scooters went up 20 mph! We went on a 2 hour tour.
Mom decided not to come on the scooter tour, but instead tour the Alamo which is a famous fort in Texas history.
Dad, Micah and I on the scooter tour in front of the downtown area of the River Walk which is a famous 15 mile network of walk ways along the banks of the San Antonio River. There are barges floating down the river giving tours and many restaurants along the walkway.
Another thing we did was go to the Natural Bridge Cavern.
Stalagmites and Stalactites that joined together to make some columns.
We had an enjoyable time at San Antonio and hope we can go back again someday.
