Running through the heart of Houston is a waterway that was used by the founders of H-town. Many years ago the Allen brothers floated up the waterway and landed in what in now downtown Houston. Fitingly the spot is now called “Allen’s Landing”. It’s now used for parties, city events and just a good old afternoon picnic. Sad to say it is also the home to some of Houston’s homeless community.
It’s a cool little area on the hillside next to Buffalo Bayou. In the summer you can see the Dragon Boat races and other fun activities.
Today some people from our Photowalk club took a ride down the bayou to see what there was to see. As the photos show it was an interesting afternoon. We rented a pontoon boat complete with a boat captian for the ride and he took us for and hour and a half boat ride.
Below are a few of the pictures I took during the ride. ENJOY!
