Tagged by my BBF Jodie. The rules are as follows. Go to your 6th file, 6th picture and post it then give a bit of background about it.
My photo should be fairly recognizable to most, especially you Texas girls. You know my dream is to be one of you. Please don't secede before I become a resident!
For those of you with no idea where this picture is, just remember the...Alamo. These pictures were taken early last year on my second trip to one of my very favorite cities ever. San Antonio , Texas. I love it there. The River Walk and art and shopping and nearby Bourne and Fredrickburg, and the independent spirit of the entire state.
This trip we stayed at the Emily Morgan Hotel. This building was originally a medical arts building, (read creepy old hospital). It is lovely now but purported to be haunted. We stayed on the 14th floor in room 1414, and since this hotel goes by the tradition of no 13 floor or room 13 we were actually in room 1313 on th 13th floor, da da dum, (scary music).
We saw no apparitions, much to my disappointment. (I think) I even took some night pictures, in hopes of catching an Alamo ghost or two. The Alamo is supposed to be really haunted. Nope, I got nothin'.
Other than lack of ghosts the trip was fabulous. I don't think we would see this gentleman riding down the streets of Cincinnati.
Anyhoo, I was only supposed to show picture 6 right? Okay, just a couple more. If you have never visited San Antonio, a must see is the River Walk. A WPA project that has since been expanded on. Bits of history blending with the new.
Like strolling through another world. A feeling of Europe in the midst of Texas.
I just love it here.
A glimpse of a gargoyle guarding our hotel entrance. Hmmm, if this was a hospital I was considering I think I would find a different one after seeing these.
MKay, now I must choose 6 lucky souls who may like to participate (or not). No obligation, but remember, it may haunt you.
