Alleluia, we are in shirtsleeves with beautiful sunshine!
Our afternoon was a delight! We visited the Petroleum Museum which has ½ of its premises under construction promising interactive displays and wonderful activities for kids. When completed in May after 2 ½ years from its inception, it probably will be a destination point when visiting the city. Because of that fact, the museum had free admission. Just seeing half of it was an education in and of itself.
Within the petroleum museum's walls were the following displays: a gallery of approximately 50 paintings by the same artist depicting the history and life of the early oil rig workers, the Jim Hall Chaparral race cars www.chaparralcars.com , and a mineral gallery depicting 500-million years of geologic history. Outdoors, a myriad of old oil rigs and pumpers depicted the history of the oil industry.
But, of course, we had to start our Sunday right with a visit to St. Francis of Assisi where mass was celebrated in Glen Rose. Today, we arrive in Las Cruces. There may be few posts while we get settled and into some type of routine.
