We  had a blast taking turns trying to turn around in the “Rat Hole,” hearing about the history of the cave, and experiencing a few minutes of total darkness. We celebrated with burgers and milkshakes at P. Terry’s afterwards – and were probably the muddiest people they’ve ever seen!

We had a beautiful Saturday kayaking on Town Lake on October 26, 2014 – complete with turtle sightings!
