Day 14 Thumbnail"

Today we toured San Antonio by bus, foot, and boat. We visited the Sunken Gardens, which turned an old quarry into a beautiful garden, stopped at the Buckhorn Saloon & Museum, then returned to the Alamo to learn more about that historic place. We took a boat ride through the beautiful River Walk. Back on the bus, we drive through downtown San Antonio and then to nearby missions, "Mission San Jose" and "Mission Conception".
