Remember the Alamo!

Theresa and I recently traveled to San Antonio to attend the National Golf Course Owner’s Conference.  While there, we had to check out the Alamo.  It is San Antonio after all.

Before we headed over to check it out, we had some lunch with fellow golf course owners.  Katherine Jesmek who owns a family golf course just outside of Chicago and George Kelley who owns Stevinson Ranch in California.

The Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio is one of the coolest places I have ever been to visit.  It was a completely other city just at the basement level.

After we attended the Golf Industry Show, we decided to check out the Alamo.

It was pretty anti-climatic, but we were happy to say we saw it.  Once I saw this hotel, I couldn’t stop singing the Davey Crockett (King of the Wild Frontier) song because I like to embarrass people.  Normally it’s my children, but in this case, it was Theresa, my sister-in-law.

We walked around the garden area which made Theresa happy.  She’s a Master Gardener and we haven’t seen green grass for several months, so this reprieve was welcome.

They had many really interesting looking plants and trees.   2015-02-25 16.06.57

After wandering around, we discovered a wishing well, so Theresa made a wish.

She wished she had worn tennis shoes.

I didn’t tell her that her wish wouldn’t come true since she said it out loud.  Oh well.  It’s the price you pay for style and beauty.

How about you?  Have you ever been to the Alamo?  I forgot to get any pictures of me there, so I guess I’ll just have to Remember the Alamo!
