San Antonio Again

We recently returned from our second trip to San Antonio this year. Again, cool and rainy - which is very unusual for them. No suntan for me! We visited a few places we had not been to yet. One was the Tower of Americas. We enjoyed going up in the tower and looking around. The best part though was the 4D movie that we watched. There were snakes coming at us and rattling our feet and bulls jumping at us with spit hitting us in the face!

The second new location was the King Williams Historic District. Settled by wealthy German merchants in the late 1800s, San Antonio's first suburb consists of 25 blocks of historic mansions. There was also a restaurant, Guenther Restaurant, with outdoor seating that was really nice.

The following are pictures of some of the mansions in the Historic District. They were so beautiful. Really enjoyed walking the streets and looking at these historic homes.

I also visited a Butterfly Haus at Wild Seed Farms in Fredricksburg, TX. More about this and pictures on my next post.
