2009/289: Houston (1)
We went on a little getaway last week-end since the kids were off Monday and Tuesday.
On our way, we drove through Houston.
I just happened to spot these guys last minute as we drove by, and managed to get a shot without any cars in the way.
Every time we drive through Houston and Sara sees the ferris wheel, she says “I wanna go on the ferris wheel!!” (Maybe someday…)
I have always wondered about those statues…by the way, in the middle photo, my office is in the tall building on the left: Chase Tower.

Doesn’t look like much has changed in Houston since we were there last. I’m sure Elle will be saying the same thing about the ferris wheel when go in December. Glad you had a fun trip. 🙂

The ferris wheel looked closed? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it move when we drove past.
I do hope that next time we can do some sightseeing in downtown Houston.

The ferris wheel is part of the Aquarium Restaurant. Behind the so-called eating establishment is a small amusement park. It butts up next to I-45. I took photos of it a few moments ago from the roof of the Chase Tower.
