Kerrville Schreiner Park & Flat Rock Park - Texas - Drone Air Tour
It was a beautiful day to take the drone flying and do an air tour of the Kerrville Schreiner Park and Flat Rock Park, located in Kerrville Texas.
The Guadalupe River has been dammed up to form the Kerrville Lake. The lake isn't all the wide or dee, but it is a great place to do some kayaking, Tubing or just relax in the many shade trees on the shoreline.
Both of the Parks are very nice and worth visiting.
Thanks for watching

San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site
On April 21, 1836, Texas won its independence when an outnumbered Texan Army defeated Mexican forces on the plains of San Jacinto. The Monument built in remembrance of the battle stands on the flat Texas wetlands along the Houston ship channel. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the history of Texas – a soaring monument to commemorate a small battle with huge consequences.

A Fairytale Wedding in Lisbon, Portugal by Jeff Zavala
Although they legally tied the knot in February with Justice of the Peace David Patronella presiding, Dr. Jessica Sheets and Dr. Lucho Rossman did the wedding-gown and broom-jumping thing in Lisbon, Portugal, with more than 60 friends and family as witnesses and with Gordon Bethune, former Continental Airlines CEO, officiating.
The couple, both radiologists at Methodist Hospital, organized three days of activities surrounding the wedding ceremony including a champagne and port reception in Lisbon, a day tour to the picturesque town of Sintra, a lavish rehearsal dinner and the wedding at the opulent Pestana Palace Hotel.
Presiding over the wedding ceremony was a first for Bethune, long-time squeeze of Rossman's sister Jessica Rossman. A fun aside: They found the broom in hotel housekeeping in order to include that tradition in the ceremony.
Dinner and dancing followed in the adjoining stables (elaborately redesigned for swank soirées) where guests partied late into the night.
