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.”
- San Antonio Express-News (the primary newspaper, Hearst Corporation)
- 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)
Thomas Sully, “Passage of the Delaware,” 1819 (oil on canvas), Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Click on the photograph to reach the Museum website. The painting was a “Gift of the Owners of the old Boston Museum.”
One of my ancestors, Irishman John Honeyman, helped make the crossing of the Delaware possible (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Honeyman). I joined the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution in 2010, after having formally demonstrated my relationship. I am now working with a professional genealogist to prove seven more American Revolutionary War ancestors.
Celebrating the Fourth of July 2012 ~ best wishes to all!
