travel tuesday // san antonio adventures [pt. 2]

I have been missing in action the past few weeks from the blogging world, but am excited to share part two of my San Antonio adventures at the end of January. See part one [here]. 

We drove out nearly an hour from San Antonio to visit do some sight-seeing. The sun was bright but we wanted to venture through the dark underground beauty of the Natural Bridge Caverns.  At 180 feet below ground level, ancient formations of stalagmites, stalactites, and chandeliers decorate the limestone walls.
 Next door to the caverns is the Natural Caverns Wildlife Safari where we drove through acre upon acre, stopping to feed [a zebra almost bit me!] and admire various types of animals.
 
After our little adventures through caverns and a safari, we drove over the the adorable town of Gruene (pronouced 'green'). We had lunch at the amazing and well-known Gristmill Restaurant, meandered around the various shops, and listened to some good ol' live country music
What a fun day! I wish I could go back in time and enjoy the simplicity of wandering through natural beauty and the vintage town.

  1. You make me miss Texas! Being away makes me appreciate it even more! Looks like you had a great day out! I've not been to either of those places. My husband and our families are in North Texas though. Love the look of Gruene.
