Until recently, I’ve always lived close enough to home to make a short drive and be there. For the last year that hasn’t been the case. So, this year, for the first time ever, I did something I promised myself I never would: I flew on a major holiday. Luckily, my wife and I both have frequent flier status, which made our overpriced trip bearable. And, at the end of the day, I was very happy to see my family and take part in Thanksgiving.
I didn’t actually take any pictures at our Thanksgiving get together. I just enjoyed it. I did however carry the camera around on a family trip to the River Walk in San Antonio with my parents and Adrian.
My parents sit for a spell on the river walk on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Dinner at Las Canarias. Despite its name, this is a French Resteraunt, and an exceptional one at that.
The Passing of a Barge. The River Walk isn't just for walking. Tour and dinner barges run up and down it carrying tourists.
The Crowds. The river walk was quite crowded on the day after Thanksgiving. I didn't mind this time, which is out of character for me.
Tower Life Building. This building sits along one of the less heavily traveled sections of the river walk and it is much more interesting than the more modern all glass monstrosities.
