Frank Alexander Paddling Three Bathing Beauties in Canoe

A trip back in time- priceless.  Here is what family vacation meant in central Texas one hundred years ago:  brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, second cousins, grandparents, and great-grandparents hitched up the horses and mules for the 20-mile trip to the most scenic river spot imaginable.  Cookware, bonnets, swim dresses, and a canoe, all piled into the wagons and carted to the camp spot.  Ah….. a break from the daily routine of ranch life!
