Happy Fourth of July!

Two Viddys from the 2013 fireworks show in San Antonio (plus two Instagrams, above):

1) Creative firework “sprays” above Tower of the Americas

2) Grand finale (very grand!)

I did take one Vine but the Instagram video was a tad blurry. I like the Viddys best!

Thanks to our sponsors. It was a great show!

Summer in San Antonio, Texas ~ “Life” Around Town

I moved to San Antonio in fall, 2010, and I am still a bit of a tourist.

Sharing a few photographs from my travels around town in 2012 … as I enjoyed a “staycation.”

  • Liberty Bar (marvelous food and a great place to camp out if your wireless goes down at home)
  • Tower of the Americas (I live nearby and enjoy this landmark a great deal; Chart House is found at the top, and it has a commanding view of San Antonio)
  • Pearl Brewery (an area being rapidly developed at present which includes a branch of the Culinary Institute of America, and a Saturday farmers market)
  • Auden’s Kitchen (located on the far north side of town in a very nice neighborhood, I love coming here for gourmet hamburgers; chef Bruce Auden is perhaps even better known for BIGA on the Riverwalk ~ either way, you can’t miss)

Follow the link to reach an article about the painting and Sully in the Wall Street Journal (March, 2011).One of my ancestors, Irishman John Honeyman, helped make the crossing of the Delaware possible. I joined the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution in 2010, after having formally demonstrated my relationship to John.
