Galveston Seawall & 1900 Storm Memorial, Galveston, Texas

One of the worst disasters in American history. Over 6,000 lives lost. Isaac's Storm is a sobering retelling of the tragedy.

Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas

Houston,  We have a problem....Interestingly the space vehicle to take man to the moon couldn't survive more than a couple decades of earth so they needed a climate controlled building for it.

Sam Houston Park, Houston, Texas

Allegedly the first Park on Houston.  With a statue dedicated to the "Spirit of the the Confederacy." Just off the Tunnels. 

Chase Building, Houston, Texas

The best view of Houston is from the Chase building. Free and you can push the elevator button yourself.  And it's connected to the Houston tunnels. By the way,  those shiny metal doors? That's the bathroom...

Nice walk along the river at night. Peaceful and quiet.
