Arriving in New Braunfels too early to go to Schlitterbahn, we found the Jaws skatepark so the kids took a spin. While following them with the camera I took a fall! Classic old lady move. My tailbone took the worst of it, but the impact was shared with my elbow and pinky finger. The camera was spared!
Pulling into Schlitterbahn parking lot reminded me of Wally World from the movies. The place is massive and the kids were super excited. Chum had to face her fears to go on some of the slides. I had to face mine and walk around a vast amusement / waterpark in my bathing suit! It was a great way to celebrate Chum's birthday (1day early).
On to San Antonio and our first big Texas freeway. We pulled into the parking outside the St. Anthony Hotel looking like some hillbilly bunch. The van is plastered with insects and dust. Chum was passed out in her bathing suit in the back and there are towels and clothes strewn about. We opted to self park rather than valet at that point.
The hotel was built in 1909 and has a history of many famous people having stayed there. There was an old glamorous feeling about it with huge crystal chandeliers and lots of wood and marble. Thank you Priceline.
After cleaning up we walked to the Riverwalk area where the canal is lined with restaurants and shops. We picked a Mexican place to have Chum's birthday dinner.
Tomorrow we will have to get the van to a vw dealership and see why my 6 month old a/c unit isn't working properly and is making chugging noises. Then we will decide our next destination.
Hopefully we can be touring the city and the Alamo while it gets looked at.
