The sun rose on San Antonio with the sound of train horns and dogs barking. I can’t handle these stupid noises that happen in every city but there is no time to relax these days, must carry on. It was a hard slog of a morning as HT and I put on our bathers and sat in the spa for an hour. It felt great to finally relax our feet that had walked so much. After our Spa we packed up the RV ready to park somewhere in the city so that we could explore some more. We parked our rig at WalMart, but it was too far away from the city. We ended up parking in the Alamo Sports complex and walked in about 15 minutes into the city.

Our first stop was some food, for some weird reason we decided to eat food court food. HT and I agreed food courts were for eating at when you were in a rush and we are definitely not in a rush so that was good to figure that out early in our holiday. We then checked out the Guinness book of records exhibit that had some entertaining sections but slightly dated facts. We then went on the haunted house ride that was a lot of fun for everyone except Adam. It was very life like, with some very dark themes and AH did not cope at all. When it was all over we went back to the river walk to try and get the same guacamole as yesterday. The place was booked out so we tried some other place next door. It ended up being a massive fail with the avocado scooped out with an ice cream scoop and lettuce underneath the guacamole to give it volume. I accidentally ordered a rose instead of a white, fail by MT, the dining experience ended up being somewhat of a downer. It was hard to be depressed though when there was a view like the one we had on the river walk.

We went back to the camper and made tracks to Houston where we hoped to meet AH’s friend Amy who had been giving us tips as to where to go in America so far, her knowledge had indeed been invaluable. We ended up racing to ‘The Taste of Texas’ an incredible steak house where they let you pick your own cut of steak from their in house butcher room and have an incredible large restaurant with a huge salad bar. It was like nothing I had ever seen. The restaurant stopped serving customers at 10pm and we arrived right on the dot. We had informed them that we would be slightly late but they were extremely accommodating to us and had a lovely night meeting Amy, a swing dancer from Perth. The steak was not as good as Del Fresco’s but was still pretty amazing, the salad bar was great and had the biggest pieces of cheese I had ever seen. We made it into our caravan park quite late and crashed into bed.
