Reflections on local attractions we don’t know about


Last weekend, along with our friends, Jim and Louise, we went down to Coffee Creek RV Park to attend the “Sisters on the Fly” camp out, with their displays of various campers that were hand painted and decorated. If you’re interested in photos, go to my blog at http://siouxsue.blogspot.com.

Anyway, we had a great time, met some wonderful people, and we saw some amazing creativity, but we wouldn’t have known a thing about it were it not for our friend and nurse practitioner, Carla Hay-Perdue.

Why did we have to find out about the fun and festive event from a friend? Because, I suppose, we didn’t know where to look to actually find out what’s going on in our area.

We went from Coffee Creek on down to the Brazos River Catfish Cafe for a wonderful meal. I hope all of you know where that is! It’s south of Millsap, and you can find out about it, too, on my blog.

But, what else was going on in Mineral Wells and Palo Pinto County this last weekend? I don’t know, but I’ll bet every one of you know about something the rest of us don’t. How did you hear? How can we spread the word?

I went to the Mineral Wells Chamber of Commerce page and with some searching I discovered the “Sisters on the Fly” camp out listed, but when I looked for other things I know are happening this spring, I couldn’t find them.

For instance, the Old Settlers Reunion in Palo Pinto is June 2. Did you know that? I had to go to the Palo Pinto County Historical Association page to find it. And they have a lot going on clear through the end of the year, but it’s only on their page.
