My son must be around 5 years old when we first saw the Alamo and rode the Riverwalk Cruise. My son said he can’t remember it. I wanted to refresh his memory but I can’t remember it too.
I knew I was in San Antonio several times before but I can no longer recall the details. When I look at the old pictures of our San Antonio family vacations many years ago, the feelings are still there but the memories are just blurry and fragmented.
So, when our friend asked me where to go on our 4th day in Austin, I suggested, “How about San Antonio? It would be nice to see again the Alamo and the Riverwalk.”
Our New York friend has not seen San Antonio before so my suggestion was an easy unanimous yes.
We started our San Antonio adventure experience passing through a grand hotel that has an elevator that led to the entrance of the Riverwalk.
There were many walkways, bridges and stairways. Each took us to a different walk in history.
Each took us to a place of discovery that is beautiful and unique.
One of the stairway led to an old hotel where President Clinton stayed. I asked my Texan friend, “Was he with Monica?” My friend did not confirm nor denied. So, my naughty imagination went wild that I caught myself smiling.
“Hmm, Mr. President, what were you thinking? Or why weren’t you thinking?
Anyways, he made an unacceptable mistake following his human desires. An Impeachment Trial for lying under oath about the sexual scandal followed, but not for the Adultery itself. He was acquitted via Voting by fellow Politicians. Lying, protecting fellow Politicians and each other’s interest has not change much since 1998. Different History, same Dance Party.
The Alamo still stood strong, brave and beautiful. This time, I made sure I will remember all of it visually and by heart. And if I forget again, I have this post to remind me of a time that is truly special and inspiring.
It’s incredible to walk in history. To stand were soldiers and heroes once stood, fought and died is very humbling. Helped me value all the more what an honor and privilege it is to live in America.
The American and Texan Flags are a product of blood, sweat, tears, heart, soul, loss and victory. It deserves respect and appreciation.
The Lessons of Alamo are needed today more than ever. It’s canons needs to fire once more the loudest to awaken the entire country to unite against its real enemies.
All that walking made us hungry. Lunch was at Whataburger, it’s the In and Out of Texas. It’s one of our Revisit Texas Bucket List.
No one cared if it’s 1,000 calories per cheese burger. It was so good that there was no left overs.
We’re eating big. We’re in Texas.
