Tour of Rancho El Charco
On Sunday we did the tour of Rancho El Charco, a 150 acre ranch about 10 miles west of Mission at LaJoya
www.ranchoelcharco.com/bocapaila .This property was once to be a housing development but was rescued by the current owners, preserving the natural mesquite forests and prickly pear cactus plants. They have brought some of the native animals back to the ranch, offer tours for adults and school children and have to created two areas that can be used for weddings, parties, meetings, etc. It's borded by a 75 acre lake which makes the setting very nice.
There were 28 in our group for the tour and lunch which was served at the resturant/bar area where they have live entertainment outside several days of the week. We had ribs, sausage and peppers, potatoe salad and tossed salad for lunch - very tasty. It was cloudy and very windy all day and continued into the evening so when we got home a nap was in order. We stopped by Bill and Mavis's to see how they have been doing - Bill was relaxing in his chair and Mavis was working on her puzzle - we really enjoy them - especially Bill's teasing Mavis!!
Another good day in the valley!
