I’m on a very short layover in Charlotte, but wanted to send some photos your way --- hard to imagine I’m going from a warm and windy Houston area to a blowy and snowy Indiana!
In between our workshop and our evening meeting Lisa took me on a little jaunt around the area ---I had asked how close we were to water ---and she showed me!
It doesn’t look like it here, but temps were in the high 70s. and the wind was gusting enough to blow my hair out of control…..
This is looking LEFT from the end of the viewing platform I was standing on, down at the boat moorings.
While I stood there watching across the water….this large ship came into view:
I watched him slowly make his way up the waterway --- and he turned into a channel on the other side of the bridge instead of going under it……
I was told by Lisa that her grandkids call this the M&M bridge! I wonder why!
This is what it looks like while driving through. I see two M’s –don’t you??
Self windy portrait in front of the San Jacinto Monument!
This monument is actually taller than the Washington monument --- I hear Washington gets a bit miffed about that, but as we all know, things ARE bigger in Texas!
A lovely respite at the monument inn provided us a chance to sit, watch the ferry shuttle cars back and forth ---and eat some yummy seafood.
I turned my head to look out the window next to me and WOAH!! Where did this freighter come from?!
I had a wonderful time with the Houston area ladies—next time I’m going to add a day or two to the schedule so I can go play! The Houston rodeo is in full swing ---3 weeks of Texas fun. Let’s schedule that in, girls!
Warm and windy ---and having a great time!
Time to run and catch my next flight ---next stop ---Indianapolis!
