Okay, some might say, "You see one cavern, you've seen them all." We've seen the Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, a mix of granite walls, waterfalls and caves that play hide and seek with the lost river. Very cool, but not really caverns. We also saw the Dixie Caverns in Roanoke County, Virginia. They were discovered when a ...
San Antonio part 2: Today I wandered off the key tourist spots, but still along San Antonio's Riverwalk.
On the way to a Mexican hot spot, I stopped at the Spanish Governor's Palace built in the Adobe style of architecture. Then, I found a charity second hand shop.

Back in Del Rio, we found the recommended restaurant ("Memos"), but it closed at 2 p.m. for the afternoon and we got there at 2:15. Dang. And it looked like a really nice place. So, on the way out of town we stopped at a Mexican restaurant (El Patio Del Rio) - good food, but nothing particularly distinctive. We then drove the rest of the way to ...
