Burning up the thorn bush pile and the tank pile. Check back later for more pictures Got a good 3/4 inch rain about 1:00 pm. Carson and I had to give up on work and do some 4 wheeling in the rain and mud. Got some Gopro video to edit and add to this post ...

We would definitely do a Norwegian cruise again. The 'sweet suite' deal with balcony really made it for us. Having experienced this once now, I'm not so sure we will be able to cruise again in a regular cabin. But that takes extra $$ and maybe wouldn't have been so sweet without the last minute 'deal' Jody found.
Like all cruise ships, ...
This morning we packed stuff in the car and then drove over to the storage place. We then loaded what we could into "G/G". We had already loaded the refrigerator on Sunday. Today it seemed to take a long time to get ready to leave and then we still had to fill the gas tank! We drove back to the Shell station at 1516 and then we hooked up the car. Next time we'll move "G/G" to the house to pack and ...
... so badly that we had to rebook & arrived 10 hours later. The skies are clearing now so hopefully we will get out just 30 minutes behind schedule. If it happens that way, then we should make our connection in Chicago. Send up a prayer for us.

Once our bellies were full, we decided to go to La Villita, a historical arts village. The community, originally the homes of Spanish troops when the Alamo was a mission, has been transformed into thriving local art community. We spent a great deal of time meandering around the village looking at the unique mix of cultures in San Antonio portrayed in art, still while feeling like you are stepping back in time hundreds of years. As ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk
Great Place to Stay !!!
I would recommend this hotel to all. Very clean. Staff was quite helpful !!! Easy and safe access to the Riverwalk. 5-10 minute casual walk to restaurants on the Riverwalk. Stayed on the 15 th floor--nice view--not near elevator--- King room. Name change to Crowne Plaza in early July. Enjoyed our stay !!! 6/14-6/17
This was the first vacation my husband and I have been able to take in 3 years. Knowing this has been a stressful year for me, my husband splurged on the Romance Package. The desk clerk was reminded upon arrival, and we were suppose to receive our wine and chocolates at
Stayed at the Adam's Mark Hotel Apr 21-24, 2004. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. We were on the fourth floor with a direct view of the roof. It is on the Riverwalk but a not in the central location of all the restaurants and shops. Wall were very thin in hotel, could hear conversations in next room. Seemed to have trouble cashing a $100 traveler's check. Gift shop girl told me she did not have change and did not offer anything else. I asked her what does she do when she runs out of change. She said she calls the front desk. I had to tell her, why don't you call them. I was sent to front desk and check was cashed. When I checked in the day before, the front desk clerk told me that they did not cash traveler's check but that there was a bank across the street. (---). Buffet breakfast was good.
Adams Mark must have been built thinking that the north side of downtown would "boom" sooner than it has. A bit far from downtown attractions and the Rivewalk, but not bad. We walked most places. Nice room, minimal amenities for the type of hotel it was. We were very disappointed that our pot of coffee and two orders of bagels (cited on the menu as a "selection of bagels") featured just a bagle each with creme cheese (no jams) and came to over $16.00, plus tip! (May I suggest you wander down to Shilo's on Commerce for a great "local" breakfast at about $5.75 a piece, or drive up to Taco Taco at Hildebrand and McCullough for a fantastic Mexican style breakfast -- migas, breakfast burritos, tortillas.. Both places have great wait-staff.) We might stay at the Adam's Mark again, but there are better values in "high end" hotels around.
Stay away from this run down, out dated place!!
I have no idea why the rating on this hotel is 4 stars. It is dirty, run down and the service is terrible. The rooms look like they have not been redecorated in about 15 years, the check in staff (Seahn, namely) is SOOOOO rude, and the breakfast waiter we had was awful. The food was cold and not very tasty. We were very disappointed, as this was an anticipated trip that was ruined. Do not waste your time at this place.
Go somewhere else!! I wish I had listened to the others that agree that this place SUCKS!!
We also did get 2 weekend night for $45 a night. Actually I got 2 rooms so I ended up impressing my friends when I told them how much their share of the total bill was. They had paid big bucks, over $150+ on not so nicer riverwalk hotels. I admit it's not close to the part of the riverwalk where much of the party gathering crowds roam but it's not that far either. My wife had the audacity of walking all the way to Rivercenter Mall, about 2 miles away and she had no problems and lots of fun doing it. Staff is very frienldy and got us good locations to dance some nice Salsa and to have great mexican breakfast buffet @ 4.95 per person, which included entertainment from a 9 young female members Mariachi band. Wife loved the place, I think it's called Estela's Restaurant. Hotel's daily self park is $9 and there's a very convenient underground walkway from parking lot to hotel's lower level. We previously stayed at Hilton Palacio del Rio and you have to walk thru traffic if you want to self park there. Again we were happy with this 3 star hotel at the price that we got it. We'll stay there again if we can get the same great deal. And if you like Salsa music, there's a nice and small place at the south end of Alamo street called "Bar Latino" but you have to get there early to get a table and enjoy the great live salsa music, one of the best we've heard. Crowd tends to be semi formal to dressy since there's a nice and trendy restaurant adjacent to the bar.
I got this hotel 3 months in advance through Priceline for $45/night (wish I'd started my bidding lower!). It's a decent upper-tier 3-star/lower-tier 4-star hotel. While technically on the riverwalk, it's at the far end of it. Kind of like getting a hotel billed as being on the strip in Vegas, only to find it's at one of the far, far ends of the strip.
Not really a 4 star
No ice machine on our floor, no mini bar in room, no HBO (have to pay for all movies), rude front desk.
Nice hotel. Not exactly on the Riverwalk, as is implied by the name, but within a couple blocks of it and the Alamo, letting you skip much of the traffic. Service is excellent--very attentive, from valet to the wait staff. Food is excellent; breakfast menu diverse and delicious (orange juice is fresh squeezed). Room service is very prompt and 24 hours. My standard room was uninspiring, though, from the decor to the amenities--no HBO, not enough outlets or room to iron, blandly decorated, mattress a bit of a dud. Nice gift shop. Valet or self park off-site (a bit of a walk through underground corridors). Easy access to major highways. Ask for a room not near noisy elevator shaft.
