Being a Tourist in San Antonio

We drove up to San Antonio from Corpus Christi last night and checked into the Fairfield Inn at Downtown Market Square. So we started today with breakfast at the hotel.  Lee went down and brought breakfast up to the room.  I had to take a picture of the Texas waffle (except it's upside down)!

Breakfast is served!

After breakfast, we checked out of the Fairfield and checked into the Emily Morgan Hotel where we stayed our second night compliments of Ben E. Keith Co. Foodservice Distributors. We were invited to attend their annual Food and Equipment Expo tomorrow.

 This is the Emily Morgan Hotel, right around the corner from the Alamo

Walking toward the Alamo

 The Cenotaph "Spirit of Sacrifice" by Pompeo Coppinni

This monument commemorates the Battle of the Alamo and bears the names of all who fought for Texas during the battle of the Alamo.  

Remember The Alamo!
