Below: On October 24, 2010, a plane comes in for a landing on the north side of Galveston Island. This was shot from the boat launch area on 61st Street near I-45. This is across the water from Moody Gardens. From that location, there are just a few days each fall when you see the sun set over the water. There is another opportunity in February when the sun makes its slow journey back north.
"I strolled into a deserted seaside café
All on a winter's day
I ordered up a cup of rich brown memories
Sat, and I watched the sea..."
—From "Teas," a song by Donovan Leitch
Above: Dixie Farm Road Park, January 25, 2011. The park is in Harris County near Pearland. The "lake" in the background is a wastewater detention pond which holds water only after a heavy rainfall. The South Belt Hike and Bike Trail loops around the perimeter of the basin. After this deluge, Texas went into a long drought with no major rainfall until the end of the year.
