One of my favorite places to relax, stroll, and take photos is the San Antonio River walk. No matter how many photos I shoot, I notice differences in all of them and never loose enjoyment taking them. I hope you find inspiration in the photos and choose to take a trip to this wonderful place.

Enjoy the photos!

Photography has to be one of the most relaxing things I have found in recent years. Often our memories cannot capture or remember certain things but the camera is a great friend for that job. Here is a small collection of photos that I took around Corpus Christi Harbor and Bay. Thank you for viewing and your continued support.

As a long-time native Gulf coast citizen I love all things Gulf Coast. Rockport-Fulton is a laid back coastal town that still brings home their own shrimp, fish, oysters, etc. The Fulton Mansion is a piece of history dating back to when Texas was it’s own state. Mr. Fulton made his way from Philadelphia and never looked back. A Yankee tradition I might add. The south never won the battle, but they did win the war. If you think deeply and know your history you will understand. There are plenty of places to relax and stay in Rockport-Fulton. However, this trip for me was all about THE BIG TREE, in Goose Island State Park, which is over 1,000 years old, and has a diameter of over 35 feet. It was the largest tree in Texas for many years, but now the largest tree is located in the San Bernard Wildlife Refuge. Here are a few photos from my stop in Rockport-Fulton and Goose Island State Park.  For more information on Rockport-Fulton click here https://www.rockport-fulton.org/and for more information on Goose Island State Park and The Big Tree click here https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/goose-island

A world of sweetness

Inside this globe of beauty

Something men could learn.

Seasons often change landscapes and plant life leaving the photographer many options year round. Today I made a trip to the Houston Arboretum to hike and photograph what I found to be beautiful. I hope you enjoy this collection of photos as much as I do. Thank you for viewing.

Garson Persian Restaurant offers a variety of awesome dishes and some fine belly dancing too. Do to a lack of time I will not write much about them, but I do believe the photos speak for themselves. The food is delicious and fresh as can be! For more information visit them here http://www.garsonhouston.com/

I have long loved Greek Food and Olympia Grill at Pier 21 fills that need when I am relaxing down on Galveston Island. The Greek Sampler offers a great selection at a reasonable price and best of all it is delicious. Pictured here is the Taste Of Olympia platter featuring hummus, tzatziki, falafel & dolma, Greek salad, spanakopita, gyro slices, pastitsio, moussaka & vegetables. Also pictured is a dessert platter sampler. The views are outstanding and one can often see the cruise ships leave the Port of Galveston and the clipper ship Elissa.

The Houston Bicycle Museum is a really great place to view racing bikes, BMX bikes, recumbent bikes, historical bikes, lowrider bikes, art bikes, etc. Interestingly, I just learned of their imminent closure until they find a new space. New spots for the museum have rent costs three times more expensive which could pose problems. They have to leave their current site by October 18, 2018 due to a parking lot expansion for the Holocaust Museum. I really hope they find funding and a new location because the history behind bikes is really amazing. If I were a billionaire, I would give them a million A.S.A.P., but sigh, I am not.

Here are a few photos from my visit and some of my favorite bikes. A chopper, a wooden one, an artsy one, a Asian style one, a musical one, a lowrider one, Lance Armstrong and Tour de France, and a room view.

The Star Drug Store has been around for over 130 years serving Galveston Island residents. They have food, malts, shakes, and banana splits just like you would find in the 50’s. If you want nostalgia and a feeling that you have stepped back in time, or just a place to experience history, this is a must do on your bucket list.  Here are a few photos from my stop.
