Brazos Bend and such


I've been to the States three times now and my two previous trips consisted of Texas exclusively, but I can't say I've seen that much of it. Despite being a city animal, I am also a huge nature lover and have finally gotten to see Brazos Bend, which I had heard of so much before. The landscape was swampy and crowded with trees that cast reflections in the swampy waters. On the banks of the walkways aligators would be sunning and not making much of your presence. The place had lots of views of birds of all kinds as well and in general was a wonderful walk.


Christmas was great and soon after we left to go to Austin and visit an uncle here. We took a walk through downtown and I finally got to see how cute this town is in daylight. We're setting off to go to Waco in a couple of hours and will spend New Year's Eve there. I didn't bring my camera on this trip, so no pictures from this one...

At night the alligators trundle out of the swamp and swarm over the horizon into downtown Houston, then paddle slowly back down the Brazos. Luckily Umble is out of range, but don't get caught in the Medical District after midnight.
