Houston Adventures: It all started when…

Houston football team: The Texans.

 

It has been too long since my fingers have told the stories of my recent #adventures. Life can have many distractions, and time being a fickle creature can slip away before we even realize it. In my last travel series The Journey Home, I had found myself in the middle of Texas. The part of Texas I ended up in was the Texas one might imagine it Texas to be. One could find small rolling hills and lovely Bluebells that encompassed ranches and empty fields stretching farther than the eye could see. Of course, we did not live too far from the big city of Austin where a person could enjoy Texas city life at its finest.

Fast forward into the future and I no longer dwell in the country, but I now find myself navigating through the streets of Texas’ largest city, Houston. While I enjoy the country life, I am also enjoying my time in a large city. It has been a long time since my family, and I have lived in a city so large that a short trip could turn into an unexpectedly long trip.

I must admit it has taken some getting used to, and there have been some up and downs. I took a long break from writing but my fingers can no longer stay still, and I am back, and I am ready to share a new series with you. I hope you will enjoy and share some of your thoughts on my adventures. I look forward to being back with my brouhaha fans.

Weekly Photo Challenge- A History of Endurance

The Battleship Texas served sailors in WWI and WWII.

La Porte, Texas is a small town near Galveston Bay plays an important part in American History. The San Jacinto Battles Grounds is a historic attraction that kept up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife agency.

The photo of the Battleship Texas was taken during our housing hunting expeditions to Houston (believe me we had more than a few expeditions).  I added in the Mexican soldier (played so well by hubby) to portray “endurance”. Endurance is a hardcore ingredient when it comes to the making of American history.

The battleship tour will aid you in imagining the life sailors endure during the wars, especially in comparison with today’s sailors. Imagine your only source of news from home depended solely on snail mail? I am sure my iPhone toting teen would find that barbaric.
