Glad we made it to San Antonio Freightliner to have the faulty purge valve and some maintenance completed. The valve continued to leak and it was hard to keep air in the suspension. Fortunately, a new valve was at hand. While this work was being done, we decided to explore San Antonio a bit.

Of course, our first stop was the Alamo. What an interesting place it is with many, many historical artifacts and interpretations. The city has done a great job preserving this shrine of freedom.

We were impressed at the detailed information that was available and enjoyed learning more about this important site. While we were there, we crossed the street to the San Antonio Riverwalk.

Here is Orinda on one of the entrances to the riverwalk. We were amazed at the many, many fountains, flowers and water features that surround the walk. A beautiful spot!

This is the river itself. You can stroll on both sides of it past many different cafes and shoppes which was interesting for Orinda!

We ended up staying a second night at the Freightliner dealer since the work was completed in the late afternoon. No problem since they had complimentary full hookup sites! Super deal.
