I mentioned last week that my Dad and I had both gotten fitbits to track our activity. It’s not as easy to get to 10,000 steps per day as I thought it would!
I am staying with my friend Irene while in San Antonio – so great to have girlfriend time! ((And access to her sewing room, her washing machine, and home cooked food!)) and I told her about my trying to get in more steps, so after our riverboat cruise, we put our feet to the pavement and just kept walking.
I love the old buildings in downtown San Antonio. It’s just a great place to be for just what we were doing….enjoying being outside!
We eventually found ourselves at San Fernando Cathedral, founded in 1731 and the final resting place of the remains of Davy Crockett, William Travis, and Jim Bowie.
The cathedral is the OLDEST Cathedral in the United States!
See the medallion in the center of the circle?
It marks the official center of San Antonio!
Memorial for Davy Crockett, William Travis, and Jim Bowie who lost their lives in the battle of the Alamo.
Marker for the three men.
The Cathedral is beautiful ---and I took many photos, so I’m uploading them into a slide show here. Click the image below if you can’t view the slide show on your mobile device. You’ll be taken to the photo album for viewing.
