A Waterfall In Houston?
The past week or two it has been cold in Houston (for Houston), and Linda and I warmed up our world by taking a quick road trip to a tropical rainforest. Actually we just visited theCockrell Butterfly Center at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. The Cockrell is a beautiful glass enclosed tropical garden with a 50-foot waterfall. It is a small oasis in the middle of a big city filled with exotic plants and hundreds of gorgeous butterflies.
The butterflies don’t stop and light for very long, so taking pictures was a catch-as-catch-can situation, but here are some shots I was lucky enough to get.
We took our last boat ride of the year this past weekend. It was a bit chilly, but it was a lovely day and the lake was as smooth as glass. We spent about two-and-a-half hours on the lake, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to finish our year.
Happy New Year!
