Twenty-two folks in eleven cars joined us for blueberry pickin’ and steak eatin’. First on the agenda was a break at Buc-ee’s Travel Stop in Terrell, an attraction in itself to most of us. This incredible travel stop had 84 gas pumps, 700 parking spots, huge clean bathrooms, and a 60,000 square-foot store selling much more stuff than what you reasonably need for any road trip. Our next destination was Blueberry Hill Farms in Edom. With cloudy skies shielding us from the hot Texas sun, conditions were ripe for blueberry picking. The farm also had a country store selling everything from pre-picked blueberries to preserves, donuts, pies and muffins. This farm and the family who runs it were featured on the Texas Country Reporter TV show and in Texas Highways Magazine - it was well worth the visit. After we had our Thrill on Blueberry Hill, we drove on country roads to the Four Winds Steakhouse at Wills Point. Once owned by the Cowboys' Lee Roy Jordan, it is run by former Del Frisco Chef Frank Rumore. They opened for lunch just for the club, and we made our 3-course meal selections from our Group Menu which included steak, chicken and fish choices.  Our bellies satisfied, we then drove home on our own.
