As we start our new routine in Chicagoland, I’m throwing up the last of our photos from Texas. We tried to fill our remaining weeks with some of the activities we had always wanted to do, but had never gotten around to; as well as some of the things we enjoyed and would miss the most about Houston.
One of those attractions we had always wanted to check out was the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Houston has an array of world class museums and the MoFA is a big one. There is some amazing paintings there in particular, and I loved taking in different artists’ views of light on a subject using paint vs. the use of light in photography which I’m more used to!
I wish we had taken the time to visit more of Houston’s museums than just the MoFA! We will have to make sure we don’t make the same mistake here in Chicago.
One of the activities we will miss most about Texas is visiting Jim and Mel in Austin and visiting the wineries in Hill Country. So, we set out for one last visit.
On the way to the next winery, we stopped to take a snapshot in front of this cute, vintage Texaco station!
Our next winery, Driftwood, looked out over the expansive surrounding vineyards.
So there we were, enjoying our wine, when the rain started and turned our view from this:
The chocolate was just how we like it- dark and fruity! It was a great match with the wine we’d chosen as well. Score!
While we will definitely miss Houston, and Texas in general, we are ready to start discovering (and rediscovering) the things that we love about living up north, and nearby to our family and old friends!
