We have out-of-town family visiting us this week, and today we headed to San Antonio. It has been a long time since my last visit to the Alamo. So, it was nice to visit again to get a Texas history refresher.
The rain finally let up, the sky cleared and the sun came out, making for a nice afternoon.
The Alamo is hallowed ground, given the loss of life there in 1836 of those trying to defend a foothold in the battle for Texas independence. A plaque on the door reads:
“BE SILENT, FRIEND. HERE HEROES DIED TO BLAZE A TRAIL FOR OTHER MEN.”
If you are patient, you might be able to get a picture of the front of the chapel without people milling about.
