We took a boat tour to watch the
Sea Turtle Rescue staff release some turtles
We were on the Double Sunshine
Jerry F., Kathy & Jerry B., Diane, Wendy, Bob
they are hard to "catch" with a camera
Part of the staff
are placed until they are ready to go back to the sea
which were back to back so we could
see the release from the other boat
Ready or not...
Here we go!
We ate at Pelican Station after the turtle release

We drove to the Sugar Processing plant
west of Santa Rosa to watch the trucks
carrying the cane being unloaded.

Bob decided that we should follow a truck
to find the field. When the truck turned onto a
dirt (not gravel) road, we stopped following it.
The field was a mile off the road.
of La Feria, we passed the gun club....
Never thought about the Civil War extending down to South Texas

Our neighbor Terry organizes a ladies' luncheon
once a month at local restaurants. This month
we went to Stefano's--can you guess what
kind of food they serve??? :-)
I'm in the back with the cowboy hat....
(note the carry-out boxes...I belong to the "clean plate club")
Nephew Doug the fisherman sent fish to Texas with his parents,
so they hosted a fish-fry this week. Yummy!
We found the Lebanese Bistro in McAllen on Sunday
I ate the grape leaves before we took the picture.
The food was great!!!
Sam, the cook, created this Madonna and Child
using silver and mother-of-pearl inlay.
He also did ones of Bill Clinton and Michael Jordan.
He wants to sell this one.
On March 3 we went to see "The Good Vibrations,"
who do "Beach Boys" music
The Vibrations were good
The "real" Beach Boys
The concert was at Llano Grande RV Park in Mercedes,
a little town west of La Feria
