What better way to spend Mother’s Day weekend with my daughter Micah than at one of the Noble Inns Bed and Breakfasts in the King William District of San Antonio, Texas.
After a quick flight on Southwest Airlines, we arrived at the Oge House on Friday morning.
We were met by Megan MacDaniel, who showed us our accommodations: the lovely Castle Howard Suite on the first floor. Although the Oge House was built in 1839, the bathroom, especially the huge shower, was definitely 2013 style with 5 pulsing jets. I could have stayed in there for an hour!
The picturesque San Antonio Riverwalk was only a very short walk away, and Micah and I headed there. We enjoyed people-watching on the Riverwalk and also managed a stop at the Rivercenter Mall where we were able to take advantage of some great sales. That evening we had a tasty Caribbean dinner at a restaurant Megan had recommended, Azuca Nuevo Latin.
The next morning, after a delicious breakfast of baked apples and granola, spinach soufflé, sausage and biscuits, we headed to the Farmers Market. Since Micah and I are directionally challenged, it took us much longer than we anticipated, and we ended up walking about 4 miles to get there. We took a cab back!
Later that afternoon, we had a guided walking tour of the King William District from Gary of San Antonio Walks. We learned about the German influence in San Antonio and the history behind some of the beautiful old homes in the King William District. After dinner at the eclectic Mad Hatters café, we walked back to the Oge House but stopped to get a couple of Megan’s wonderful chocolate chip cookies to take to our room.
The next morning we took an early cab and headed for the airport and back to Dallas/Fort Worth. Another great time with my daughter was made even more special with the hospitality given to us by Don and Leisl Noble of the Noble Inns.
