But before we ventured out to see it, we spent quite a bit of time at the Water Wall across the street right smack in the middle of downtown Houston...it's actually considered uptown Houston near the Westin Galleria! A sight so impressive, it rendered us speechless at first! It's a huge multi story 'fountain' unlike any other I've seen! It is 64 feet tall representing the 64 stories of William's Tower directly across from it. Water cascades in sheets both on the outside and inside of the semi-circle wall.

BRIGHT SPOT - Upon arrival to Texas, I made the decision that I had let my lovely grey locks grow long enough...time for a new more spunky do! While Carl was patiently occupying himself between the motor home and Walmart (where we spent the night), I ventured over to the little strip mall that included a "Sport Clips" where Victoria took VERY good care of me and did an excellent job with my hair. It is a rare instance when the stylist does exactly what you asked her to do! (I usually only have that luxury when I'm in MD and my daughter Nicole does my hair!) In chatting with Victoria, I learned that she is a woman with an entrepreneurial dream. She initially had a career in the field of international corporate law. Having grown up in a military family and experiencing the type of travel that accompanies it, she found it to be a fascinating line of work. Then, as life would have it, she was thrown a curve ball. Her mom took ill and eventually passed in 2012. During that period, Victoria chose to stick around and go back to school. She received her cosmetology license and began a career in that field. As a young girl, she had cut hair for friends and family as the skill came pretty naturally to her and she loved doing it, so it made perfect sense. She also majored in business law which will be of great value to her in the future as she plans to start her own business.
***So folks, if you are in Houston and want a great cut, Victoria is your girl!!!
