Austin, TX - day three
Our third day in Texas started off with a late start to the morning. After a quick trip to Target (sorry M, I couldn't find the lip balm you requested) we hopped back into the car and made the one and a half hour drive South to San Antonio.
Everybody recommended the river walk in San Antonio, so here are a few snapshots...
Remember this from the film Miss Congeniality?
Amazing building from a distance with a palm tree on the right!
San Antonio Bexar County Courthouse
Of course, we walked over to see the Alamo. Supposedly the Alamo was voted as one of the top ten over rated monuments in the US. It was pretty good in my opinion. The entire tour is free, unless you want to rent an audio head set and there is quite a lot of exhibits that you can walk through.
