Kemah: In Pictures

On May 29, 2006, my little sister and I set out to visit Kemah.
I used to live in Clear Lake. For reference, you have to
pass thru Clear Lake on your way to Kemah.
Clear Lake is home of N.A.S.A.
Kemah is on Galveston Bay.
Clear Lake is only 15 miles north of Galveston.
I miss Clear Lake.

It's not an unusual thing for me to go to Kemah. Some of you guys have even seen pictures of me in Kemah before. This is just my way of letting you into my daily life.

I was driving.

My sister was goofing off.

Riding thru Clear Lake, I found that the rumors are true:

there's always construction in Houston.

You can tell you're getting near water

when you start seeing palm trees.

You can tell your getting close to N.A.S.A

when you see a space-man themed McDonalds.

(I didn't realize that 'themed' McDonalds was such a big deal. I mean, I had driven by this particular location hundreds of times before. But then I started thinking to myself, Self, think about it, how many 'themed' McDonalds do you know of? Just this one? There must be others, but how many people have seen a N.A.S.A.-themed one? I think you should post it.)

Yes, Krazy K... that's called the o-c-e-a-n.

Ah.. the wind blowing in your face, the salty sea air..

Ahoy, mateys! Something tells me Krazy K has spotted Kemah!

(For some reason, these pelicans are a landmark staple in Kemah. Everywhere you look, there are different ones on people's boat docks, in front of businesses, on street corners. I actually risked my life for this picture. Krazy K wanted a picture of one, so I pulled over on the side of the freeway and shot this pic. The freeway, by the way, is riiiiight behind me. And of course I had to take it one step further, and make her pose with the pelican.)

Once we arrived in Kemah, we visited a few local shops.

I like how they translated it for you in case you happen to be a pirate.

I'm Mexican, so I've seen a lot of beans in my life.

But this was my first encounter with lucky sea beans.

Between stores, we stopped for a couple of kodak moments.

As we left Kemah, we admired the boats and sea and the clear blue sky.

Sorry about the lack of posting/blogging lately. Blogger, as many of you will attest to, has been a royal pain in the ass lately. I couldn't post or even comment for the past week. I will begin my regularly scheduled blogging on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

Baby, I'm from Houston, lost on the East Coast and I have only one question. Is it still called Pasafuckingetdowndena or have they ruined that too? Your blog rocks and I'll be back.
