RA November Trip
November 5, 2005
A group of 11 men and boys had a pancake breakfast at First Baptist Mableton and then drove to Bent Tree for this month's trip. This is our traditional picture spot on the Bent Tree dam overlooking Lake Tamarack. Back L-R are Daniel Torres, Oscar Avila, Samuel Reyna, Javier Lopez and Noe Cabezas. In the center is Johnny Huffman. Front L-R: Sebastian and Jesus (Oscar's nephews), Gerardo Cabezas and Francisco Reyna.
As we approached the gate on Bent Tree Drive, we got a good view of the fall leaf colors.
We had two fathers with sons with us: Noe Cabezas with son Gerardo left and Francisco Reyna with son Samuel right.
Rod with Oscar Avila near the beach. It was a good time to let the boys play.
Sebastian and Jesus loved the sand and just about dived head-first into it. They got so much sand on them that Rod is swinging Sebastian by his heels to shake some of the sand off him
Javier Lopez and Johnny Huffman with the beauty of the leaves around Lake Tamarack behind them.
Gerardo and Noe Cabezas on the fishing dock with the colored leaves behind them.
These Canada geese cruise on the lake with the bright leaf colors mirrored in the water.
The group by the waterfall below the spillway on the opposite side of the lake.
Johnny was kept busy baiting hooks and acting as fishing coach to teach the boys about casting. They got pretty good with practice.
It was a peaceful afternoon for fishing with the beautiful backdrop of the leaf color around the lake. Some other folks had some colorful kayaks out on the lake.
The adults also got involved in casting on the lake. Daniel was more inclined to explore the area.
Gerardo really seemed to enjoy learning to cast, and was getting some long casts out onto the lake surface.
We were certainly blessed with some of God's fine paintings on this day with the leaf colors and the smooth lake surface. We were pleased to be able to share these sights with these families.
The RA (Royal Ambassador) Program is part of the ministry to boys at First Baptist Church Mableton. We meet from 6:45 to 8 pm on Wednesdays and plan a monthly Men & Boys Breakfast and a Saturday activity.
