Around 3:45, we all walked out to the street to wait and catch the city bus downtown.
We filled up about half of the bus!
We got off the bus at Cesar Chavez Blvd and began walking over to the Tower of the Americas.
The Tower of the Americas is 750 feet tall and is located in HemisFair Park. It was built as the theme structure for the 1968 World's Fair. One of the elevators that takes you to the top is in the below picture.
And that's where we are going to dinner. Way, way, way up at the top!
There was a nice view of downtown San Antonio from the elevator...
as well as from the top at the restaurant.
After visiting with our friends, enjoying the views and eating some appetizers up at the bar, we went down one level to the Chart House, the revolving restaurant at the top of the Tower.
Terry had done a great job getting this organized!!
Chuck and I weren't sure what to get for dinner so we got the same thing as Warren and Joslyn who had been here several times before: the prime rib. And it was delicious!!!
Everyone had such an enjoyable dinner.
The food, the company, and the views were just perfect! (Can you see P-E-A-C-E written in the lights of one of the buildings below?)
As we headed back down the elevator after dinner, all of downtown San Antonio seemed like it was decorated for Christmas with red and green lights! :)
Even the tower was lit up with red and green lights.
We walked our way through HemisFair Park...
...and then the long way around the block...
...back to our bus stop. What a fun evening with all our friends from San Antonio!
On Friday evening, the campground had their annual Christmas parade which consisted of 4 or 5 golf carts,
our two resident musicians singing Christmas carols out of the back of a pickup truck,
and even a bicycle decorated up for Christmas!
After the Christmas parade was over,
we all went back to the recreation hall for some hot cocoa. Yummy! :)
