|Our view in Port A|
After Port A we headed to San Antonio. We stayed right on the Riverwalk and had fun walking down the river and seeing the sights. We took the boat tour which I recommend if you are ever in San Antonio. The tour guide we had was hilarious and we learned a lot about the riverwalk. and of COURSE we stopped at the Alamo. It was an experience I’ll never forget, mostly because its size. It was a lot smaller than I had envisioned. But it was awesome none the less. We watched the Alamo Imax movie and learned all about it. I love how proud of their history Texans are! I also love how proud of their state Texans are! Everything has the state symbol on it. It was pretty awesome!

We were only there for a week but it was a very fun filled week. We saw things and experienced things I’ve always wanted to do. OH and I almost forgot! While we were in Port A we took the drive out to Kingsville to the famous King Ranch! That was pretty awesome! Now I wouldn’t recommend the tour to everyone because basically you sit on a bus and drive around a ranch looking at cows and a few horses. But for those interested in ranching history or agricultural history I highly recommend it. They currently have around 60 broodmares and a few stallions. At one time they had 2,500 horses! Can you even imagine? One fun thing I learned is that when halter training the foals they will tie them to a donkey because they will NOT be pulling a donkey around haha. That mental picture made me laugh.
But all in all it was a wonderful trip and I got to relax even if all I did was eat and eat and eat! I would definitely go back some day!
On another side note, we became home owners today!! Signed the paperwork and now the work begins so we can get Piney home!! Yay!
