Outdoor Wednesday….In Houston!

Hello my precious blogger friends.  Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday!   Please visit our lovely hostess Susan over at A Southern Daydreamer.

I’d like to share pictures I took while in Houston.  :)

Oooh!  Look at this traffic!  It was not even during rush hour!IMG_3838


Would you like to go to the top of this building?  Not me! LOL!IMG_3842

How about driving on one of these bridges?  IMG_3740


And that’s about it.  I am amazed at how busy and fast life is in Houston.  Everyone is always in a hurry there. hee hee.  I come from a quiet city. lol 

I hope everyone has a great Outdoor Wednesday.

Houston is a very busy place, it would seem. Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Happy Wednesday!

Reminds me of Dallas! OKCITY is not as busy but we do have a few tall buildings. Nothing like Texas, tho!!!

I lived in Houston when I was in 3rd grade...I love TX but Houston is not for me! :( I'd move back to Dallas in a heartbeat if my kids would move back, too!

Hi Sandra, I live in the LA area and we have this kind of traffic too! I think the building picture is cool!

Hi Sandra,
I spent a summer in Houston, and remember the humidity and traffic jams! It is a great city with lots to see and do. I met my DH there, so it's a special place for me. Enjoyed your photos and hope you had a nice trip.

Oh yes....this all looks so familiar!! But, to drive in freaks me out. [Our son lives in big o' "H" town!]

My Outdoor Wednesday is photos of surfers/the Gulf Waters...come on over test the water temperatures!! I'd love to have your company today.

You got some very nice shots of Houston. It is much too big a place for me. The traffic would get to me. Thanks for sharing as I do not plan on going down there soon.

Great pictures. In this very small country of ours the roads are always overfull so I am not surprised. Have a nice day

Your photos are wonderful. I especially love the one of the highway maze. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

that would make me have a panic attack! I could not live there!!! I am a small town girl. thanks for reminding me that it is nice to be small!!!!

I forget how much I hate Houston traffic until we have to drive in it! But Houston is such a fun place to visit that I grit my teeth and deal with it. The worst for me are the "spaghetti bowl" highway loops - I always get turned around, so I make DH drive. And now we have them in the Austin area too, so I guess I just need to break down and buy a compass lol. Happy OW. Kathy

I am honored for you to follow my blog. I was shocked yesterday to learn I had 50. Never thought that would happen. Thank you.

Tootsie said...

thanks girl...for keeping my parents in you prayers!

I had a friend who used to live in Houston and he said it was exactly as you said it was. I once went to Arlington Texas, and it was very busy also, and hot!

Thanks for sharing, the photos give us some idea what it's like in Houston. I always think of NASA when I think of Houston, of course.

I always complain about the traffic in Dallas, but I've heard that the traffic in Houston is even worse, if that's possible*!!!!! Glad you survived it, and hopefully you had a great time while there*! ((Hugs N Love)) _Ashley*
