In this post, I'll share a trip I took over Easter weekend. I went to Houston for a family event. If you've known me for any length of time, you know there was a time I said if I can't drive there, I'm not going. Then Guy moved to Portland. So I had to overcome my anxieties so I could go see him. And now, here I am making a really quick trip to Houston! (Down Friday, wedding Saturday, home Sunday. )
I always get a window seat, and I love the views! Guessing where you are can be fun.
|It was cloudy over Buffalo- and most of the first leg of the trip.|
|I've never seen a jet trail from this angle before.|
|Some art work inside the Atlanta airport|
I don't know if that is a small river twisting along there, but white on the curves intrigued me.
|So that's the Mississippi river!|
|Look how green it is around Houston!|
|A great idea- no making the tall people fold themselves in half!|
So, I'm not sure I've ever mentioned that on my bucket list is to visit all 32 NFL stadiums. So we drove into the city so I could see NRG Park, where the Texans play.
So we went across the street and sat in the parking lot of a hotel or something and I took a picture. The dome on the right is the Astrodome, which no one quite knows what to do with.
|We also drove by where the Astros play.|
|In Houston, the gardens are filled with Amaryllis, like we have daffodils or tulips!|
|In front of my hotel, a Bottlebrush tree was in bloom.|
It was a very small and simple wedding
At the Japanese garden in Hermann Park.
And the next day I was on my way back home!
|That's the Gulf of Mexico!|
|And maybe the mouth of the Mississippi|
I had a long layover in Atlanta on the way home, so I took the scenic route to my gate. This section of the tunnel is meant to feel like a rain forest. It has forest sounds, and lights that look like rain falling on the floor.
There is also a hall of the history of Atlanta, which is very cool. Who knew there was a Marthasville?
The planes come and go at a very fast pace in Atlanta. No, they weren't using the same runway!
Someday I'll go back to Houston when I can stay a while. Maybe in October for IQF
