Over and over, as my posts from the past when I was visiting Houston show, my car loves to go out into the country. And if time allows I end up, over and over, at the same places. (Drat - it is thundering, and lightening I may have to shut down AGAIN)
(next Day! no more thunder but is COLD) Often my car drive to the Brazos Bend State Park, Oyster Creek Park, Kitty Hollow Park, the bird preserve out by Katy or just for fun takes a country road to nowhere.
For a different type of day I can drive West on HWY 90 for about 25 minutes and there is what used to be the small town of Richmond. Now we say Richmond – Rosenberg because these two small towns have grown so they meet making one big, no personality city. But there is a small area of ‘old town Richmond’ right off 90 that the locals have tried to preserve and make into a small but pleasant place to walk, shop for antiques and local crafts, and have a good old fashioned drugstore hamburger for lunch.
The hamburger is okay but the shops are a lot of fun, a stroll down memory lane for me. Old glass and other collectables line the walls and windows.
Just one way that my car, camera and I spend a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
