Brazos Bend State Park


Houston made Time magazine’s list of 46 places to go in 2013, and made number 7 no less. Which reminds me that I really should get out and explore this city even more. I’ve done the Weistheimer area of downtown, and Galveston, checked out the Orange Show and visited the zoo and Hermann Memorial Park, but that paltry list is it.

Now we have visited Brazos Bend Park. Just 30 minutes away from our home it was a beautiful wetlands area, filled with wildlife. There were several flat and easy walks, many of which were interconnected. We would have done many of them had 1.5 miles into our first walk (a nature trail) I had not withdrawn my hands from around Sam in the sling and gone ‘Oh God… they are wet… and don’t smell good’. A quick dash back to the car and an exploded diaper later, we discovered we didn’t have spare trousers for Sam – so home it was.

Brazos Bend was so beautiful we will definitely go back. In the meantime: enjoy my pictures.
