We have friends in San Antonio that we were not able to connect with last year. This year, the timing was better. In addition, a cousin from Ohio who I hadn’t seen in many years was in Texas at the same time we were. We almost connected with them on the way down. (We were 20 miles and one day apart, but missed each other.) However, we were able to plan dinner on their last night in San Antonio.
After two weeks of no laundry, it was time for some full hookups. We found an RV park along the southern river walk (not far from a couple of the missions). We made it to the campground in the early afternoon and arranged to meet my cousins at Dough Pizzeria Napoletana. This was definitely not Dominoes or Pizza Hut. Freshly made mozzarella and burrata and very fresh ingredients made for a very tasty (though not inexpensive) meal. It was wonderful to have dinner with them, even if we both had to travel over one thousand miles from home to connect.
The following day we were treated to a meal of homemade lasagna as we caught up with our San Antonio friends. We talked a little about work (three of us were coworkers in the past) and generally caught up on family, travels, photography and other things going on in our lives. They are really wonderful people, and it was a fantastic evening for us.
I was still under the weather, and between two dinners, grocery shopping, laundry and some other chores, there was not a lot of time for sightseeing. We did a short stretch of the riverwalk near the campground with Coda and enjoyed a few hours of down time before our upcoming long days traveling across Texas and part of New Mexico.
