San Antonio

View Our Journey on Meike Carter's travel map.

After 2 nights in Kemah we packed up and hit the road around 10 AM. Landon was busy with his online classes, and I bounced between teaching him and helping to navigate for Tony. We were excited to see our daughter Michelle and her husband Peyton in San Antonio. They are stationed in Lackland and we wanted to celebrate her 20th birthday.
We stayed at the FamCamp on base. Full hookup, gravel sites close to the Commissary, for $20 per night. It was alright, but we would have enjoyed a bigger spot that was level even more.
So..we heard about Lulu's Cafe and the 3 pound cinnamon roll. That was originally our birthday cake for Michelle.
Upon entering the Cafe a weird smell made my stomach turn. We saw patches on the ceiling that had water leaks. We questioned, if it was safe to eat here. While waiting to be seated water dropped onto our heads and we decided to leave.
Too bad, we really wanted that cinnamon roll.
We dined at Maggiano's instead and had an outstanding waiter. The food was fabulous and desert divine. Tony and I had a slice of Cannoli Cake.
We didn't do much sightseeing, since we wanted to spend extra Family time , but we did check out The Pearl on a Sunday morning. Every Sunday local farmers, artists and entertainers gather and offer their unique goods. For brunch, sit down with food from one of the vendors, listen to music and people watch to your heart's content.
I tasted some amazing rosemary ciabatta dipped in olive vinaigrette.
When strolling around The Pearl don't forget to sneak inside Hotel Emma, a former brewery, where old industrial charm meets a modern twist. And of course, you have to visit the Alamo and San Antonio's Riverwalk.
