Antique Cash Register

Had a quick chance to take some pictures in the historic Lewisville Feed Store that observed its last day in business after 100+ years. So many wonderful antiques there providing glimpses into the past.

Inland Sea Oats

Had an opportunity to take a wonderful walk along the river outside New Braunfels and found some delicate and graceful inland sea oats. Not something we see much of in north Texas.


We found this treasure in New Braunfels, Texas, this weekend. Settled by German families in 1845, examples of the German heritage are plentiful. This is a maypole that symbolizes important milestones in the life of the town.

Snakes Alive!

We spent a wonderful weekend at T Bar M Ranch outside New Braunfels with about 300 fellow Texas Master Naturalists learning about nature and our environment. Ran into this little guy while I was on a bug collecting expedition.

Pilot Point, Texas, the scene of a bank robbery by the infamous Bonnie & Clyde, remembers its history. Re-enactments, arts & crafts, car shows - it was a fun day!

Abandoned Kitchen

We had an opportunity to photograph an historic farm near Lake Ray Roberts. It's in pretty dilapidated condition and, unfortunately there's no money to restore it. Enjoyed working in the house and in the barns that are full of rusted farm equipment.

Water Lily

Out with a group of biologists collecting bugs but I caught this pretty water lily open in the early evening light.
