If you find yourself in Galveston on a cloudy day, the Aquarium Pyramid at Moody Gardens is a great place for some indoor fun.
In Hermann Park, there is a small Japanese Garden that you can visit. It is a nice spot and home to several special plants, gold fish, and turtles. I was thinking that it would be great to visit in the springtime when everything is in full bloom.
Although beautifully colored, this fish was too fast for photos. I had to take my car to the shop this morning, and this guy was hanging out in the waiting room. His mission was that of destruction. He wasn’t happy with his current environment, so he decided to change things one rock at a time. In the top photo, you can see where he has dug a hole in the aquarium all the way to the bottom and upended some plants along the way. He would swoop in, pick up a rock in his mouth, and then swim over to the side and spit it out. He was a nonstop blur of rock transplantation. :-O
On this sunny Saturday, I took a walk through Zilker Botanical Garden. There were flowers, trees, bamboo, fish, dinosaurs, waterfalls, and other things wanting to be photographed.
The San Marcos River is one of the best places for swimming. The water is cool, clear and welcoming. Sewell Park is always filled with fun people who like to soak up the sun, jump in, swim, and float. The river begins just north of where these photos were taken – at the San Marcos Springs or Aquarena Springs. Definitely go for a swim if you find yourself nearby.
