Do you ever wonder about the history of your city or a city you visit? How about advances in security and technology? The Houston Police Museum covers many of these topics and it is absolutely free. If you are traveling through Houston or if you live in the surrounding area I highly recommend this museum. Thank you to the men and women who protect us everyday. Here is just a tiny bit of what I saw at the museum.

Digging through more photo files, I found some excellent photos from Charleston, South Carolina I shot a few years back. I love the history of the town and the southern hospitality. If you love BBQ and historical architecture Charleston has it! If you are looking to slow down a bit from the hustle and bustle of a large city this is your place.

Do you ever take so many photos that some just slip by you? That happened to me with these awesome photos I took while traveling Amish country in Pennsylvania. The Amish are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. They do much of their work by hand the old-fashioned way and have a way that is just perfect for their community. The homemade baked goods are the best! I love the Amish! https://lancasterpa.com/towns/

I have had so much BBQ in my life that I can hands down say the Pecan Lodge has a perfect balance of smoke, sauce, and tenderness to the meat. The service is excellent even when crowds wrap around the exterior. One unique thing is fried chicken on the platter instead of BBQ chicken. I have never had that at any BBQ establishment, and I must say the fried chicken is superbly crispy, seasoned, and juicy. For more on the Pecan Lodge check out their website http://www.pecanlodge.com/ This is one stop you need to make while in Dallas, Texas.
