Visit to the Alamo

We have spent the last week here in San Antonio enjoying the weather and the San Antonio International Christian Film Festival (SAICFF). For those of you who might not be familiar with SAICFF, it is a yearly event of competition (this year's top prize was $101,000) for newly produced films, short and long. Represented were film producers from all over the world. We had the opportunity to hear the Von Trapp Children, the great grand children of Sound of Music fame Maria. We also got to see unreleased new films by Dean Jones and the recently released film Fireproof. Both Dean Jones and Kirk Cameron were there at the film festival.
Naturally, breaktime at the film festival meant a short walk to the Riverwalk and lunch along the river at Casa Rio with our friends Ruth and Gavino Perez.

On our walk back to the film festival, Ruth, Gavino, and Doug had to put there western boots on San Antonio on the granite map of the USA. I was relegated to taking the photo since I didn't have my boots on that day! None of us wanted to claim cold PA since we were all in TX at the moment.
