I’m still working through cleaning up my blog because of the Photobucket change of policy which resulted with them replacing 8 years of photos with ugly black and grey boxes asking for money to release my photos. I’ve made it to 2010 and have miles to go before I delete all those boxes. In the meantime I have these highlights from past posts in May. So much to be thankful for over the years.
We are in a warm weather pattern right now with just one wet day predicted this week. Right now a high of 75 degrees expected for Mother’s Day! We had a nice mostly quiet weekend here. The highlights of the weekend: time with Josh and Laura on our deck after the Sounder’s game, church on Sunday morning, and an afternoon meal on Sunday with friends in Kirkland. Hope you all had a good weekend.
One of the mornings we were in San Antonio we walked from the car rental agency back to the hotel and we saw these signs. Boudros was along the River Walk and although we didn’t get a chance to eat there I am told they have a table side guacamole they are known for. Wish I had some right about now!
Here’s is who the city of San Antonio is named after…
While in San Antonio, Texas a large tourist draw is the River Walk in the downtown area. They say it is the number one Tourist attraction in the state of Texas. I’m happy to have seen this area but it was not my favorite from my San Antonio experience.
Most of my photos were taken in the early morning hours when the walkways were clear of the hoards of people you’ll find here later in the day and evening. I’m not a fan of Disneyland like crowds so the walk wouldn’t be my first choice for a meal even though you’ll find a very large selection of restaurants all along the downtown part of the walk. I preferred heading up and out of this area to find a place to eat. Despite my feelings this is a treasured area in San Antonio.
Some treasures from Washington State in my very own yard are these rhododendron bushes. Four of the bushes were here and well established when we moved into this old house in the fall of 1998. The small yellow bush is a recent addition from 4 years ago.
Rhododendrons are the Washington State Flower.
Our youngest rhoddie.
And my last photo are of some of my favorite human treasures in front of our rhoddy bushes!
ABC Wednesday started by Mrs. Nesbitt and administered by Roger and Team for R is for River Walk and Rhoddies.
I’m headed to Canada (British Columbia) early Tuesday morning and will be gone all day so I’ll be late in visiting participants in these two memes. We are promised beautiful weather for most of the week in the 70’s! Hope your week is starting well.
We arrived to San Antonio in the late afternoon and after checking in to our hotel we walked along the River Walk and beyond to a Steak House for dinner before turning in for the night. It was sunny and hot, hot, hot. We were happy to not have rain and hail!
Tomorrow I will go to the Alamo and possibly get on a trolley tour. Dear will be busy in a booth at the Oncology Nurses Society annual meeting. Over 50% of our plane was filled with Oncology nurses traveling to the meeting.
