Heading Home


Yesterday, our last day in the big city was spent taking it easy and just wandering around.  We thought we would drive over to the Galleria Mall and look around – the day before we had driven past and saw a huge water fountain display a couple blocks away so first we parked in the parking deck and walked over to see it before shopping.  The water fountain is huge and across from a very tall building

the water wall

A huge wall of water the water is on the back side also and behind this front that almost looks like an entrance to a building.  It was very pretty and popular – could not get a photo without people in it but because of that you can see how very large it is.

We wandered around the mall which was huge – we had been there last in 1986 when the girls were with us – needless to say it has been remodeled plenty of times I’m sure, and added on to perhaps – a nice large ice skating rink on the lower level – we were lucky to see some children practicing for a Christmas program perhaps I have those photos on the camera though not the phone so will look things over when we get home to see what might still be fun to share.

I finally dug out the hexies and got to work on them after we got back to the hotel from supper at PF Changs – nice meal of Chinese food.

Heading home today – I actually wrote this last night and scheduled post – it is about an 8 hour drive so depending on what time we finally get out of that huge city it might be evening by time we get home!  Maybe I will work on the hexies on the drive – we will see depending on the roads – sometimes too bumpy to do so!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    How exciting that you got to go to the show! I have not been to that show since 1995…I lived in Galveston for 4 years and went every year. It was huge then, I am sure it is much “huger” now. When I was there last, most of the quilts, vendors and food were on the main floor. What a nice little treat your husband gave you following your good eye check up! Congrats on not buying much, LOL!

      This place was so spread out – must have been much smaller when it was all on one floor – have no idea why they had the food area on the 3rd floor and in an area that made it the longest walk to do! I almost think the vendor area was larger than the quilt area – and so much just devoted to sewing machines and long arms – I would have loved to see more devoted to the traditional hand quilting quilters. We know there are actually a lot of us out there.
