Thursday Thirteen #16--Favorite Snapshots

Thirteen Cool Snapshots from my trip to San Antonio, Texas!!

It's an easy squeezey list this week since I started my new job and haven't gotten into a new routine yet!

Here are 13 of my favorite shots off the camera from the trip to San Antonion last week. And no, we didn't do ALL of those things, but we did do the ones we felt like doing once we got there; and by goodness, we enjoyed the time away!

  1. The view from our hotel room (17th floor!) facing west down Commerce:

  2. The lovely and luscious Riverwalk boat tour scenery:

  3. Just one photo doesn't do it justice:

  4. This really great-looking building across the way from the Alamo:

  5. The chapel door at Mission San Jose:

  6. A view of the mission I would love to paint:

  7. A view of the Alamo enclosure wall I would also love to paint:

  8. The fountain in front of the Crockett (yes, as in Davy) Hotel:

  9. The best dessert of the weekend--tres leches with meringue on a carmelized disk of sugar:

  10. The Tower of the Americas (wow was it windy up there!):

  11. Me and Mr. Rex...believe it, or not!

  12. Me and the man who made all the fun possible (and yes, we did ride all the big coasters, including the largest wooden coaster in the country!):

  13. And for all the blogger ladies out there who love him....Mr. Johnny Depp:

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Muah! =)

Happy TT!!

Great pictures, happy TT

What a great TT! I wish we could have done more when we were there, but we went there for my husband to have a surgery, so he wasn't up to doing much.

The meringue and JD were my favorites-what a surprise.

You're home already!

You're right. The weeks do fly. Glad you got a foodie picutre in there. I was in N.O. last year. Even got a couple of poems out of the inspiration. By the way, if any of your visitors are interested in poems, they might like my book Tracings.

Have to wait for another book for the New Orleans poems, though. (-:

Awesome pictures! I want the dessert and to see you paint at least two of those Mission shots!

Donna said...

Laura said...

I LOVE the picture in #3 ... it would be a bitch to paint, but it is beautiful!

And speaking of beautiful ... was that really Johnny Depp? Couldn't have been.

(what is TT?)

Allyn Evans said...

What job? :)

It's been years since I've been to San Antonio. Great place to visit.

Ah yes, Johnny Depp. *sigh*

Uhm... you rode all those coasters? I'd be dead! :)

I just told my husband I want to go to San Antonio next year. I will defiantly be stopping by to visit Mr. Depp.
