960 Miles to Havana Part Two

It was May 16th, 2016 and we were taking on 1000 gallons of fuel at the Galveston Yacht basin. It was 5:30 pm. I was hoping for an earlier departure but had a couple of delays

The Beach Army Hospital ads to the lists of haunted places in Mineral Wells Texas. And some say it could be one of the most haunted locations in all of Texas. After visiting there myself, I agree.

The sun had set over the horizon and as darkness draped the Hemingway Marina an inconvenient truth became abundantly clear; we had lost Roberto. It was strange to describe a 56-year-old man as lost.

960 Miles to Havana Part Three

It was 5 am and we were meeting the regatta to make our 90-mile journey in the predawn darkness. We were just outside the Stock Island channel and I was looking for the big catamarans because most of the people in our group had chartered catamaran yachts in Key West to make the journey across.

But despite the glimpses of a faraway time that can still be seen, the old power plant continues to become more disheveled.

Panther Park was first opened to Fort Worth residents in 1911, originally located on the West Side of Main St. But the park was moved just blocks away and renamed LaGrave Field in 1926.
