My World

Visit My World to see more of our world or to participate yourself!

Last week we walked around the Museum District in Houston a little more and this week I thought we'd return to Hermann Park and walk a little there.
Hermann Park is nestled between the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and
the Museum District.


This is the reflection pool. It is 740 feet long and 80 feet wide.
We are looking toward the Pioneer Monument (obelisk 50 feet tall) and
the Miller Outdoor Theatre.



There is a jogging trail that winds it's way through the park --
about 2 miles long.
You can sit along the way and relax under the old live oak trees.



How about some Tai Chi?




If you are tired of walking, you can always take the train!




Or sit and share your lunch with a friend.

Joy to You!

It looks like that would be a nice place to linger as long as it wasn't to hot and humid to leave the air conditioning.

My main blog is here.
Hi Snap, how about if I walk the trail and join the Tai Chi group for a cool down? I love this post. Have a great week!

Indrani said...

Great shots and I would love share my lunch with the friend in your last shot. :)

Beautiful snaps. It is nice to have places like this in city, where people can relax.

Wolynski said...

Houston is far more beautiful than I imagined.
Enjoyed your post on cooking. Is it possible that if people grow up on crappy fast food, they have no idea what good (fresh) food is supposed to taste like? A friend grew up on tinned asparagus (vilest thing ever)and now can't enjoy it fresh and steamed. Other friends used to take me to overpriced restaurants and claimed the food was delicious, while in reality it tasted like cardboard. What's the point of great cooking in a country of spoiled palates?

Reader Wil said...

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

Is there anything that Houston doesn't have?! Oh yeah, snow! I hope it's cooled down for you some. It's hotter than hades up here and I'm lovin' every sweat drop of it.

That jogging trail looks exactly like in the movies. The only thing missing is a guy in a sweated YALE gray t-shirt who is accidentaly a former secret agent...

Barb said...

That looks like a park anyone can enjoy! The duck (?) is amazing!
