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.

... kick about with some of the other tennis guys. This was the first time I'd played football in just under a year! Far too hot for running around but very pleased to have a kick around! In the evening we all went to top golf. Top golf is like a driving range, but far more social and fun. It's interactive and gives you electronic scores based on the game you are playing and how close to each of the targets you hit the ball, pretty good concept! On the Saturday, I dragged ...
... There were hundreds of people about, I couldn't believe how busy it was still! We stopped in a Texas steakhouse (they're all called that) we both had salad, me chicken and Ross shrimp. I had a margarita, as it seems to be very popular here in San Antonio, Mexican and Spanish background? *forgot to mention - we were going to go horse riding in San Antonio but whilst I was on the bus last night I google mapped how to get to the ranch and it was 36 miles out with ...
Our time in Dallas is coming to an end; another city down - it's going so fast! Dallas is a really nice city it has some cracking landmarks and it very green despite the blistering heat which is unbearable and even hard to walk in, it feels like you have a weight on your shoulders and your really short of breath all the time. Felt really safe here, they always have police officers riding around on bicycles near enough on every corner and some ...
... after breakfast we unhooked and packed up, said our goodbyes and I left for church. After church I headed for home, arriving here about 1:20. Bob was already home and had emptied the refrigerator. We then finished emptying The Hammer and the car (we had already emptied the kitchen cabinets since we can't get to them with the slide in) and that stuff was in the car. So now ...
