From Friday, Jan. 2 to Sunday, Jan. 4, I worked three ten-hour days at the RV park. On Monday, Jan. 5, I slept in again. Monday was "chores day" with laundry, cooking, and shopping on my plate.
Tuesday the 6th, Susan, Darren, Peri and I did the 10 km (6.2mile) Missions Volksmarch. We met at Mission San Jose to sign in for our walk, and then drove to Mission Concepcion where the walk started.
Every time we walk along the San Antonio River, I am amazed by the birds and turtles we see. This time, we also saw the ever present tower crane. You see, there is a lot of building going on in San Antonio.
A few major building projects in San Antonio are: a huge addition to the Convention Center, new apartments near the Blue Star Arts Complex, a new children's museum on Broadway, new Emma Hotel at The Pearl (formerly the Pearl Brewery), new hotel on the Museum Reach of the San Antonio River, Victory Medical Center, Forest Park Medical Center, Children's Hospital renovation, new buildings at University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA), and Embassy Suites is breaking ground in April 2015 on a six-story hotel in south San Antonio. Already completed was the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in downtown San Antonio. Wow!
Sorry, I got sidetracked. Back to the Volksmarch...the walk was mostly along the San Antonio River from Mission Concepcion to the Blue Star Arts Complex in King William District.

Camping World in New Braunfels was having their own "RV show" and we had a date to look around at their new and used inventory. It was fun to traipse in and out of 5th wheels and motorhomes. One thing is certain, we can't afford even a used motorhome. We fell in love with the floor plan of a brand new Forest River Cardinal 5th wheel. Now we know when we're ready to trade in our 2003 5th wheel in a few years, we will look for a used Cardinal. Of course, we'll look at other 5th wheels as well because we like to make a choice that works well for us. We still love our used Holiday Rambler Presidential after living in it for three years.

Wednesday, Jan. 10, we had our weekly staff meeting at the RV Park. I worked my regular hours of Wednesday through Saturday.
You just never know what we'll be up to next. Stay tuned.
