A very nice lady took a picture of us on the Riverwalk. Left to right, bottom row are Mike's brother, Mike and our son Lee. The second row is my brother-in-law's friend, our daughter Ky, me-Kerrie, and Lee's girlfriend.
We toured the Riverwalk, had a great lunch, then spent some of the afternoon at our hotel. We stayed at the Menger. It was built adjacent to the Alamo in 1859. The Menger bar is where Teddy Roosevelt recruited some of his Rough Riders. And, the hotel is said to be haunted. The image of a lady who is sitting and knitting has been reported by guests and staff. We didn't see her but the hotel is heavy with a feeling of history. The weather was very warm and we even spent a little time in the pool. Every time we left our hotel, we passed by the Alamo which is also a place that is heavy with history. Most visitors stand before it in awe and you can feel their reverence for the people who fought there. It is a solemn landmark and I've never lost that respect even though I've been there many times. What an awesome place to visit!
So, we started Mike's retirement in a very special way. This will be an adjustment but we are really looking forward to it.
