River Walk and Missions

River Walk San Antonio here we come again. We wanted to get an early start this morning so as to ride the River Walk boat before the boats became so crowded--we tried--our boat was packed at 10:30 in the morning. The guide was very entertaining and Jill and Terry really enjoyed their River Walk boat tour. There was also an arts and crafts festival along the River Walk.

Michael and I on the River Walk and no, we did not plan to dress the same and I was dressed before Michael!

Jill, Terry and Michael at our lunch spot.Two years ago while here in San Antonio, we did an extensive tour of the five missions leading up to the Alamo. We went with friends Angie and Ralph and thoroughly enjoyed our day. We wanted Jill and Terry to see these missions--so after lunch we got started. We started with Mission San Juan which is in this photo.

Mission San Jose, the largest "Queen of the Missions" was next and we spent a lot of time there. The rest of the photos are from this mission. Mission San Jose was established in 1720 and the church was finished in the late 1700's. Mass is still celebrated at each of the two missions we visited on Saturday and Sunday of each week.

Mission San Jose. We have visited this mission twice now and each time there is construction equipment around the front of the church which kind of ruins the photos. This is a side view of the church.

Another outbuilding at Mission San Jose and a wonderful blooming plant.

A butterfly or flutterbye as Michael calls them.

Another wonderful day with our friends. We came back to the RV resort and relaxed then gathered for a dinner that involved eating anything that was in the refrigerator--leftover pork tenderloin, homemade bean burritos, salad--no one went hungry!
