Still on the road...Houston Downtown Aquarium

We stopped in to Houston's Downtown Aquarium.  If the weather isn't rain and cold, there's a lot to do.  It has several exhibits, like the white tigers of Maharaja's Temple as well as 400 species of marine live.  

There's also outdoor rides, games, and a Shark Voyage exhibit that you ride on a train to view tunnels of sharks. 

Here's a few photos that I took with my iPhone....

That's it for today...I've to be up at the buttcrack of dawn to get out of Houston before morning rushhour traffic.

Reasons why I love Texas...Lunch at Lercy's

First off, I love Texas because today was 65 degrees and sunshine.  While it was snowing and icky in Indiana.

The second reason why Texas is dear to my heart, is the people...great conversation, kind to strangers, and social manners.  I've heard things like 'please,' 'thank-you,' and 'you comon back anytime.'  

The third reason is the food.  I'm gonna let the photos speak for themselves but the chow was fabulous and we dropped in right at closing.  The service was great and the people were wonderful. 

Again, the food was great. Just good home cookin' with a sassy down home style.

Willy Burger, fun Texas' lunch...

Today, during our travels...Bob and I stopped in for lunch at a place call Willy Burger.  I walked in and fell in love with the 50's kitchy vibe.  The folks that worked there were fabulous and very chatty.  

The food was the best of the best burgers that I've ever had.  So if you are any place close to Beaumont Texas, stop in at 5535 Calder won't be sorry. It's Texas cuisine at it's finest.
