Hello lovely readers! While you were all reading about Vegan Oatmeal Craisin Cookies (which has been my most popular post so far, thank you!), my husband and I were celebrating our first anniversary in the lovely city of San Antonio. I brought back a few pictures to share:
The courtyard at the historic Fairmount Hotel where we stayed. The Fairmount is famous because it is the largest building ever to be moved. Workers put the whole building up on hydraulics and scooted it to its current location a few blocks away when they needed to widen a street.
View from the River Walk. I timed it just right so there were only a couple of people in the shot. The River Walk was actually a lot busier than this picture makes it look.
Every night there is a light show at the San Fernando Cathedral set to music. We stopped to watch for a little while.
The remains of our year-old cake that we hauled all the way down to San Antonio. The icing slid off as it defrosted so I had to piece it back together.
Me doing my Texan duty and visiting the Alamo for the first time. Shout out to my husband for making me look good!

The gardens by the friary

The path into Mission San Jose. Unfortunately, most of the mission is a recreation rather than the original.
The altar at the mission church.

Pathway leading towards the church. This was originally enclosed and provided housing and administrative space for the friars.
