Witte Museum

 On Friday, we headed to the Witte Museum with Ruth and Gavino. Our main purpose was to see a special exhibit that was to start that day. It was to commemorate JFK's visit to San Antonio the day before his visit to Dallas where he was assassinated.
 The lovely courtyard here at the museum was the setting for Rita and Peter's (Ruth and Gavino's daughter) wedding reception several years ago.
 Unfortunately, the JFK exhibit was still being set up so we spent some time in the CSI Exhibit and had the fun of solving three crime scenes and then went through the Settlement of Texas exhibit.
 The new Settlement of Texas exhibit was very well done. That is Ruth and Gavino above and a life-sized Texas Longhorn below.
 Finally, just minutes before the museum closed for the day, we got to see the JFK exhibit. Doug, Gavino, and Ruth are below.
