Huge arches with metal bars make for pretty shadows.
The front.....don't know how I managed to get a picture without people on it as there were lots of folks visiting that day.
Some of the walls are covered with creeping ivy. Really pretty.
I had been told to listen for voices because some people find the Alamo is inhabited by the ghosts of those who fought for freedom from behind these walls, but I didn't hear anyone. Not Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Travis, or anyone else. I do thank them for what they did and for setting the example of never giving up. Everyone behind the walls was killed and their names are recorded on plaques inside the chapel. There were men from Texas, Lousiana, Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and other states, and from the countries of Ireland, Scotland, and Mexico. One man is known simply as John. This was a very interesting history lesson.
Remember the Alamo.
