The Alamo, San Antonio Texas in January 2010:

The week before last, I posted a shadow shot of The Alamo, and folks seemed to enjoy it.  So, I am going to expand on that theme and am posting a series of photos that I also took while we were there.  Not all of the following photos have shadows in them, but all of them are pretty, I think.  Enjoy!


The Alamo 

The weather was still cool, but it was a nice sunny morning with blue skies, and thank, goodness, the wind had ceased. 


Cary and I walked over to the Alamo, a mere block away.  The Alamo was an interesting set up.  It is a shrine run by The Daughters of the Republic of Texas.  It does not cost money to view it, but donations are accepted.  No photos are allowed inside any of the buildings.  There is the main building, a church, where the battle was fought along with some outbuildings. One building contains the gift shop and a display of artifacts.   There is also the long barracks building that is more of a museum, with a lot of information and displays.  There is also a historical library on site. 

The Alamo is a mission and a fort where a small group of soldiers and frontiersmen, including Davy Crockett, came under siege and fought off a large attack to "save the Alamo".  For more information, go to this website to start: http://www.TheAlamo.org
