... other hand will be busy. Mary and I will be testing our golf skills at TPC San Antonio, home course to the Texas Open. I'm not sure what we've gotten ourselves into but I'll be taking lots of pictures. Hopefully we will represent golf in The Villages well but no matter how we play, I'm sure we'll come home with some good golf stories.
That's all for now, stay tuned.

Monday morning San Antonio;
Greetings all from Texas. I wish I had some pictures to send of the drive from New Orleans to San Antonio but there was nothing much to snap. It was 540 miles of flat, swampy land with the city of Houston coming somewhere in between. It was a really boring ride. To pass the time though, I announced the changing temperature to Mary as the thermometer went from 88 when we left New Orleans to 102 when we arrived in San ...
... and headed back to the room to reapply sunscreen and rehydrate. Back to the Wave pool where the Kelly's met up with us. After awhile there, we duplicated our morning with a trip down the Falls and a long while in the Alligator area. Late evening trip to a good Mexican restaurant finished off the day, and we all slept very soundly, with Natalie sleeping over again. A great day for ...
The big girls and I were up and in suits by 7:20. Breakfast in our room and then we piled into the Kelly's car to go tot the main resort office to get our daily waterpark wristbands. Then back to our park to get in line for the 9am resort guest opening. When the gates opened, we speed walked to Master Blaster and all but ...
... 8230;I came close to adding the State of Texas to my resume…but never made it downtown since the State offices that I was visiting were out near the airport. The skyline is incredible and one building, the Frost Bank Tower, is absolutely beautiful in an artistic way. Check out the photo. We drove around for quite some time and found our way up to the State Capital building which is very impressive. Unlike many, which are white, this building is a pinkish tan, which seems ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsJW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa
Let me start by saying that we were here as part of a convention and that the convention experience can be different from a simple family vacation.
I don't know where to begin. Our room was wonderful; there were no king rooms available when we arrived close to midnight of the first night of the conference and were among the last to check in. Without much hassling on our part, we were upgraded to one of the hospitality suites. It meant a murphy bed but honestly, that murphy was more comfortable than some of the regular Marriott kings that i have slept in.
Service was wonderful. Any staff members who passes you in the hall greets you with a smile. The waitstaff, whether in the huge dining rooms, the restaurants or the pool, were friendly and helpful.
The food was for the most part excellent and this includes the dinner we had at the Cibolo Moon and the convention meals. One lunch, we were about to leave to eat else where in the hotel because all of the entree dishes contained the one ingredient that I cannot eat. We met Chef Dillard as we were about to leave and told him our problem. He said that they could easily cook up some of the meat for me plain and he ran off to take care of it. Within a short time, I had lunch.
We have been to a number of conventions at Marriotts over the past decade and this was one of the best.
