Back in 1888 when the Joske Brothers Clothing and Dry Goods
Merchants decided to expand their Alamo Plaza store, they ran
into a problem. St. Joseph's Catholic Church was in the way, and
refused to move, sell or relocate.
So they built around it, and created this unique architecture
with the amusing nickname.

Go Spurs Go!!!

We must be serious about the NBA Finals to desecrate the Alamo like this.

(Actually, this is a credit union that's a replica of The Shrine Of Texas Liberty.)

Memorial Day

A reminder of the price paid by
so many of our nation's finest.

Riding On The River

A great way to learn about San Antonio is
to take a barge ride. You'll see and hear about
many historic places while touring the Riverwalk
from a duck's perspective. Groups can also arrange to
be served dinner on the trip.

All Aboard!

Do you remember riding the Brackenridge Eagle as a child?
Your kids will remember riding the SA Zoo train, too.
It only costs a couple of dollars.
What are you waiting for?

I found this male/female pair of wood ducks happily
splashing about in a puddle at the Japanese Tea Gardens.
The squirrel was posing for me at Brackenridge Park.

The Guadalupe River

The jewel of the Texas Hill Country, this
river has more fun per mile than any other.
Take a tube/raft ride and you'll see what I mean.
Clear, cool water and beautiful scenery.

When you get out at the end of your journey,
explore the historic town of Gruene for shopping,
food, and music.

Fiesta Tower

This incredible sculpture dominates
the second floor of San Antonio's downtown
central library.
By artist Dale Chihuly, it features over a thousand
pieces of custom-made glass.

Stormy Weather

The more rain, the better.
My lawn needs it.
