On the road again..........

It's good to have our own vehicle back and on the road again. Good bye Boerne, Texas, and hello Jennings Louisiana....... But before then, we will travel through the big cities of San Antonio and Houston. Two of Ada's favorite places, but not to drive. San Antonio, famous for its River Walk, the Alamo, Tejano culture, and home to the SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme parks, the city is visited by approximately 26 million tourists per year according to the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau. San Antonio is also home to the first museum of modern art in Texas, known as the McNay Art Museum. And then there are all those Cowboys at the rodeo......... Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States and the largest city within the state of Texas. Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in the energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, transportation, and health care sectors and is a leading center for building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters in the city limits. More importantly to Ada, it's home of the Houston Astros baseball team. Now let's get our priorities straight!
