Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Any holiday involving food, family, and relaxation has my name written all over it. This year was extra special because I was able to go to San Antonio to spend time with Aaron’s family and play tourist around the city.
After a few days of stuffing our self’s with turkey we decided to get out of the house and explore the Natural Bridge Caverns. This was definitely a bucket list item. I’ve always wanted to explore an underground cavern. Other than it being humid, it was a full of huge columns of limestone and large rooms of stalactites and stalagmites.
Our last day was spent walking around the San Antonio River Walk. Earlier in the week we quickly walked around the River Walk for dinner. At the time, it was full of people and the sidewalks are so narrow I was afraid I would fall into the river. When we returned a few days later the place was empty. We took our time walking around and did some geocaching. We found one geocache really quickly. Then moved on to another one, that was supposedly found early in the day. I was starting to get the feeling people were thinking we were crazy for pacing back-and-forth along the river walk. So we gave up and hoped we didn’t make it on to a watch list for suspicious behavior.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to explore the Alamo with a full tour. I was able to take a few quick pictures before heading off to the airport. It will leave us something to look forward to the next time we visit.
