Zak Wormley visits Texas for Christmas

Big shot of the pigZak flew into Houston airport on Saturday December 23, 2006. The first thing that we did on Sunday was to go to a Texan game. We saw the Texas beat the Colts for the first time in franchise history. This was the first time that Zak has attended an NFL game. It was the second time that I had attended a NFL game. I had attended a LA img_7711.JPGRams game with my father years ago when I was about Zak’s age now (12)

The big Stargate Trailer was hold up at the Brazos Bend State Park. We stayed there for a few days and then went back to Austin. On Christmas day we went to Sylvia’s son’s house for a visit.

Houston was the next stop on Zak’s whirl-wind tour. img_7822.JPG Zak wanted to visit a museum so we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. There are a lot of great things in this museum so we spent 10 hours there. We visited the planitarium and watched the movie A Night at the Museum in the IMAX theater.

Goose Island State Park

Sun rise at Goose Island State ParkThis weekend Sylvia and I parked on the bay at Goose Island. We had temperatures in the low 80s and we were 10 feet from a beautiful bay. There were fish jumping out of the bay and large white pelicans swimming right in front of us. This image of the sun rise on Saturday was just to the right of our camp spot.

Goose Island State Park is about 20 miles north of Rockport and about 275 miles away from Austin. It took about 5 hours of driving to get to the state park from where we live in the West Lake area of Austin.

We visited the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge an saw an American Alligator and the endangered Whooping Crane. There are more images from the trip on the photo archive web site.
