In mid June, a couple of the TCA members joined Rick Creekmore at his vacation home in Port Aransas for a day of fishing. A few images of their adventure can be seen over on our BLOG site in the article posted there.
The Blum’s and the Butler’s took a trip with their RV’s to West Texas and up to Ruidosa New Mexico for a short vacation. They got rained out from the McDonald Observatory at the Ft Davis stop but the fort was fantastic. Ruidosa was beautiful with day trips to the Smokey the Bear museum, Lincoln, the historic home of Billy the Kid and a day at the horse races. Heading home included a stop at Fort Stockton. Of course there were loads of pictures from Terri and the galleries can be viewed on her Smugmug site at these links.
