Lake Nasworthy is a little gem tucked away on the outskirts of sunny San Angelo, TX. It’s not a “tourist attraction” by any means, but San Angelo is hardly a popular vacation destination as it is. The city could be considered a “military town,” with Goodfellow Air Force Base at the center. Having a population of only 100,000 people, San Angelo boasts local beauty and culture…and not much else. However if you find yourself in the area, I personally think Lake Nasworthy is a great spot to visit. It’s dog-friendly, offers camping areas, and is a nice spot for fishing. At the lake you will find Goodfellow AFC Recreation Camp where you can rent boats, kayaks and cabins. If you’re looking for something to do, you can make a fun day trip out of it with your pup!
Established in 1867 along the banks of the Concho River, Fort Concho was built to protect frontier settlements, patrol and map the vast West Texas region, and quell hostile threats in the area. Constructed of mostly native limestone, Fort Concho consisted of at least forty buildings and covered more than 1600 acres.
As a history buff, this historical landmark is one that I’ve been wanting to visit, and today I finally got to take Wynston there! The weather was extraordinary, making for a perfect day. I hope you enjoy all of our photos!
Smooth flights, rude American Airlines employees and a luggage issue later (surprise, surprise) we made it to Texas! Ultimately I’m glad we didn’t have any delayed or cancelled flights – aside from our first flight being initially cancelled and rescheduled. Wynston was the most incredible travel companion, of course, but there are some things I would have changed about our overall experience. The best part of our journey was keeping a tally of all the people who mentioned how great/cute/well-behaved Wynston is. And yes, I literally kept a tally.
Now let’s start with the less-than-pleasant employees…
Our travel day started so smoothly. Little did I know that eight hours later I’d be in the middle of an abandoned rental car building with Wynston, bawling my eyes out…
This year was terrible. Like, I would gladly forget about 2017 if I could. It started rough and it only got worse. Time to get real here – I ended up in therapy and questioning my whole purpose in life. I suppose we all have times like that, but the good news is I’m working to better myself and my outlook on life. The BEST news?! I’ve always had my one constant – Wynston. He is literally the reason I survived, and many mornings he’s been the reason to get out of bed. Wynston has ultimately been the best therapist, medicine and anxiety relief. Allow me to share with you how Wynston helped me survive 2017. Perhaps you can relate.
