After Graduation, we took Brandon to San Antonio to check out another Texas City.  San Antonio is known mostly for the Alamo, a place in south Texas where a great battle against Mexico took place.  I first saw the Alamo back in 1973 during the time I was in the Air Force basic training.  Once out of training, we got to spend a day downtown.  I don't remember a lot about that time, I was only 19.  This trip though, we took plenty of pictures, and I think what we enjoyed the most was the Japanese Tea Garden, very cool...

 
             
 

         We stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites near the Hospital.  Our room was a 2 room suite, with a wet-bar in the living room.  The days were very hot so we didn't stay out all day, coming and going to cool off and eat.  We had lunch the first day at the Hard Rock Cafe on the River, and Dinner the next evening at the Rain Forest Cafe also along the River Walk.
