We were supposed to start by visiting the Bush Presidential Library. Unfortunately, due to the Government shutdown, the Library was closed. Instead we visited the Meadows Art Museum at SMU. This museum had a lot of artwork by Spanish painters. It was very well done.
After lunch at a Tex-Mex restaurant, we had a bus tour of the city. Our guide was a 4th generation Dallas resident and was very knowledgeable about Dallas history. Unfortunately, it rained steadily throughout the tour, but we enjoyed it anyway.
We saw the Robert E Lee park with Arlington House.
A typical Texas sculpture is the 47 longhorn cattle being driven by 3 cowboys.
We ended the day with dinner at a local Bar-B-Q place.
The next day, following our Executive Board meeting, we enjoyed hearing Lloyd Bockstuck speak on an American Patriotic Icon, the Liberty Bell.
