San Antonio was awesome! We went to the Alamo, the Ranger Museum, and rode scooters from downtown to The Pearl. We spent just one day in San Antonio but fit lots of fun into the trip. Towards the end of the night Katelyn got scared because the sun was going down and we had no idea where our truck was.
The first set of photos below are of The Alamo. We weren’t allowed to take any photos of the inside but these are a few things we saw outside.
All of the images in this section are of The Ranger Museum. There were hundreds of animal taxidermy within the museum including elephants, buffalo, and deer with odd horns. Some of the deer and elk had horns that curled into their mouths and odd directions.
Peter got to shoot some targets and Katelyn finally got a set of long legs with the use of a fair mirror!
We stayed in Pleasanton for a short while. This is where we tried Alligator (Katelyn’s new favorite food!) for the first time. We were also able to go to The Longhorn Museum and experienced a torrential downpour. As Oregonians, we were sure we had seen the hardest of rains which we HAD NOT!
All of the images in this section are from the longhorn museum. The creepiest of them being a wreath of hair that was over a hundred years old.
There were tons of taxidermy but the only one worth an image was the Lion.
We spent a few days camped on the beach of North Padre Island. We ate lots of seafood (both in Corpus Christi and on Padre Island) and tried frog legs for the first time. We enjoyed the abundance of birds and spent most of our time avoiding the cold!
All of the images in this section are from Padre Island. We spent a lot of time enjoying the beach and eating seafood. We fed the seagulls and had a fire one night. Katelyn froze her feet in the sand but overall Padre Island was beautiful.
