Howard Johnson Inn & Suites San Antonio
Travel Blogs from San Antonio
Greetings, still from San Antonio;
Yesterday was a quiet day. Our only real activity was to go visit The Alamo. Walking inside the museum was very reminiscent of many of the Churches we have visited in Italy. There is a sense of quiet and reverence about what happened there. It was a moving experience. Pictures are not allowed in the museum but I did snap one of the outside.
... and they say Florida is hot!
Before I forget, let me tell you about our last dinner in New Orleans. We ate at John Besh's place Domenica, which is Italian for Sunday. It was a really authentic Italian trattoria, very informal and family friendly.

Serious advertising going on ...
... discovering how unrealistic this was! Honestly when did we think we would see anything other than the HWY????? So, in a new effort to get more quantity of quality time in less places, we culled the remainder of the RV road trip to just Houston across to New Orleans then back to Dallas through Shreveport in Louisiana.
So the next morning with a new mud map of our road plans, we set out for one of our longer drives towards New Orleans, Louisiana.
