We’ll be home a week from now. Excited to be home in a week, though it still seems far away. Looking forward to seeing friends, celebrating Easter with family, and baking in my kitchen. Definitely going to miss this relaxed pace, homemade tortillas, and sun in the winter.
Speaking of which, it has been HOT lately. Over 80 every day it seems. And because of (or in spite of?) the heat and sun, we’ve been going for multiple walks through the city and along the River Walk each day. Soaking in as much Vitamin D as we possibly can, which seems quite literal as we come back soaked in sweat. Pleasant, I know.
Speaking of pleasant, we ate lunch at Whataburger today. We’ve been seeing Whataburger locations all over Texas as we’ve been driving around, and as there is one near the RiverWalk, we decided to give it a shot.
We enjoyed the burgers (and the fancy new Coke dispenser) and were surprised how large the sandwiches were – almost 5 inches in diameter! The lettuce and tomatoes were super fresh and added a good crunch and flavor. We both agreed that it wasn’t quite 5 Guys though. The burger lacked that great char and crust that 5 Guys does so well, and the fries here were pretty standard fast food sticks, just shy of hot.
Other than that, we don’t really have too much to cram into our last week here. Checking out the San Antonio Museum of Art tomorrow (it is free on Tuesday evenings) and heading back to our favorite restaurant spots (Taco Taco and Mi Tierra). And walking and sweating some more, we have that down pat!
