Alamo Courtyard

Greetings Friends, welcome to Texas or the Alamo. People in Texas always remind me to remember the Alamo or Yellow Rose of Texas! I guess warning me of the brutal heat slipped their minds? It is hot in Texas 8-9 months a year and many people consider that good weather. They also think this state is the best in the Union, go figure!***** The Alamo is a military compound or most likely an old mission house. It is located near downtown San Antonio and is surrounded with a solid stone wall that stands about ten feet tall. This walkway leads to the southern side or wall of the Alamo. Today, there are around five buildings within those stone walls that surround the Alamo. They talk about changes that took place throughout history to the surroundings therefore some things might varry.***** Both sides and the back have old oak trees, pretty flowers, paths, bushes and a lovely green lawn. The famious shaped Alamo front faces a river and downtown district all within walking distance. The Alamo and Riverfront walk certainly represents the most visited tourist highlights of San Antonio.***** Another feature of San Antonio is their basketball team, the Spurs that came in first place again last year. A Spanish flair or style is seen much throughout that area plus lots of Mexican people and food! So if a hot day in the sun, Mexican food and song is your thing this is the place.***** I have moved many times throughout my life and thought some might love this area or style. Cheers, Jerry Stith
