San Antonio Lost & Found

I have a multi-part miracle to share with you all: 
1.  My camera was found in the cab.  It must have slipped out of my purse on our way to the airport.
2.  The cabbie was a good person.  Instead of pawning my pretty pink camera, he turned it in to Lost & Found and they contacted me right away.
3.  Even though a pre-paid box had been sent to the cab company in which they were supposed to safely ship my camera, it ended up coming in just a bag...no packaging or protection or anything.  Here's the miracle:  it was completely unharmed.  I cringed opening the package thinking surely my camera would be in pieces, or at least really banged up...but it survived!

So before my San Antonio excursion slips into the distant past, I'm so grateful to be able to show you a few pics from our last day on the River Walk:

You'd never know this is in the middle of downtown San Antonio. 
It was so gorgeous and scenic, and just a short walk from our hotel.


Remember the Alamo?  Though I'm a lover of history, I was not entirely aware of what took place at the Alamo to make it such a special monument.  Now I know.  The battle was ultimately lost, but it was the first step toward freedom for Texas.


The River Walk was so pretty and romantic. 
It's sort of how I picture Venice...only with Tex Mex flair, of course.


Me and da man on a River Walk boat tour.

We weren't alone.  These guys were there too.

As close as I am to Texas, I have NEVER been to San Antonio. I have a friend who lives there, so I should go visit to check it out!

I love that green/yellow combo! YOu are one of those lucky gals who look fantastic in yellow! I have no such luck!

What a story! I'm so glad your camera was unharmed and that it's back with you.

I love the green and yellow in this outfit, and how you paired this look with those great brown boots. Great photos!

Hey there, I love your style and your posts crack me up. I'm usually just a lurker, but had to comment since I live here in San Antonio. I'm glad you had such a fun time - it is a great city. I was afraid you might get stuck in the big Fiesta hoopla, but looks like you missed it by one week. Count yourself lucky, it is CRAZY downtown when that is going on. Anyway, just wanted to say "howdy!" :)

San Antonio is definitely a little gem in texas - I worked there for a bit in the fall so got to enjoy the River Walk a little!
