Just a photo album tonight. Too many experiences for words. Hope the pictures will speak for themselves.
A major attraction along I-10 on the road to Houston: “Buck-ees,” a truck stop style plaza as big as a Costco with all things Beaver. (And gas and food and drink and bathrooms as well.) For someone who collects beavers, it was Unbeaverable!
Signs of life as we come into the Houston metropolitan area. Freeways stacked 5 layers high. We could never do that in Seattle!
At the Lone Star Air Museum in Galveston, where I saw and photographed “The Thunderbird,” one of the few remaining B-17’s in the world. This one is in mint condition, as it was one of the last to come off the factory line and never saw service in the war.
Met Chris on the pier and he let me photograph him with his prize catch of the evening – a baby hammerhead shark! He was thrilled to think I was going to put his picture on “What’s that called? The Internet?” Here you are Chris. And thanks for sharing your catch of the day.
The sky clearing after the first rain of the trip – hard and heavy between Huston and Galveston. It scared me a bit. We’ve forgotten what real rain can be like. But after about 35 minutes, we were on the other side and the sun came out again.
