Happy St. Patrick's Day - and Anniversary

Today is a special day for the Irish as well as for us - our 4th wedding anniversary. It was a nice day for a drive so we decided to check out another part of Hill Country that we hadn't seen before and we went to the town of Kerrville. It's a little over an hour from here and very scenic. We toured the town and discovered it has 4 Dairy Queens and we had to stop at one of them. The Guadalupe River runs through this town - just as it does here.

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised with these:

My gift to Patrick isn't quite as "romantic", but I thought appropriate for him.

Portable Camp Fish Cleaning Table with Faucet

In case you don't recognize what it is, it's a portable fish cleaning table. Maybe we'll get to go fishing and actually keep the fish now. I'm still waiting to catch my first fish but don't plan on cleaning it - or taking it off the hook.

Today is the last of our "holidays". We come to Texas for only 3 months but when we go home we've each turned another year older and have been married another year.

Trip to San Antonio

A week ago this past Sunday we went to San Antonio to visit the Gunther House to have their well known waffles. They were delicious as usual. After breakfast we went to the River Walk downtown San Antonio. It hasn't changed much since the last time we were there a couple years back. It was a nice walk and we also did the boat tour. The pictures below were taken during our visit. The first is a shot of the Gunther House. The next one is the front of the Alamo. The others are shots of waterfalls along the River Walk. The last one is of a horse drawn carriage that travels the streets of San Antonio. We haven't ridden it yet, but have taken the trolley tour in the past. Have to try the carriage the next time

By the way, I finished another year yesterday. Another birthday down the drain. It was a good day.
