Last Thanksgiving we were invited to Houston, TX. Since we would be spending time in Texas anyway, we decided to visit San Antonio, a place we’d never been. Excitedly we booked the Hilton Palacio del Rio because of it’s prime location, including a dining room patio that opened right onto the River Walk.
What I expected during our stay was fairly warm weather and long, lazy strolls along the riverside walkways. What we got was quite the opposite. Autumn breeze as cold as the one we left in New York. A peek through the tall glass windows of the hotel during breakfast was all it took to brave the cold weather outside.
San Antonio — what a beautiful city! Arched stone bridges, colorful rows of umbrellas, waterside tables, idyllic waterfall, nearly empty colorful tour boats. This city is so rich in art and architectural history: LaVillita to the King William Historic district. Before I knew it was all over. Despite the cold, I had a great time and look forward to visiting again hopefully in better weather.
