Twitter (NOT) !! Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo

Phone died and I didn't realize it. And was way of into the picture taking thing.

I took something over 200 pictures. flickr will be my friend! *grins* I just hope I get five or six that are worth keeping. *heh*

Back to eats_veggies house again...

Could not have asked for better weather in San Antonio. Bright sun, crystal blue skies and it was nice and temperate as well. Not to mention good company as well!

We had a pretty good day out at the Mission San José y San Miguel de Aguayo in modern day San Antonio. The grounds are preseverd as a part of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Texas, Web site: http://www.nps.gov/saan/

Wikepedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Antonio_Missions_National_Historical_Park

This set of four missions (formerly 5) Spanish established in the 18th century to aid in the spread of catholocism and enrich the coffers of Spain.

The fifth mission is Mission San Antonio de Valero, which a state historic site, administraterd by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas since 1905. Much better known by it's common name: The Alamo.

But we spent the bulk of the day walking the large grounds of the San José and snapping pictures and actually talking very little.

I have high hopes for a couple of the pictures that I took today, which I have just pulled off the camera. I'd be happy if a dozen or so came out good.

I haven't had a day like this for a long - LONG time...

Just a little time to immerse myself into something, no worries about making sure every one was happy...And I love the history type stuff.

Dorie and I kind of went in the same general direction around the mission, but since I stopped every six inches or so take a picture (or five *grins* or six *LOL!*) she spent a lot of time somewhere out in front of me. I had to go looking once or twice! Oh Okay ~ there she is. Waaaaay over there. No worries...*snap-snap*

At any rate, we're back at the hacienda d' Eats Veggies, Dorie is in the kitchen working her culinary magic on some fajitas, and I, lazy bastard I am, am typing this entry.

Pictures later, maybe.
