Getting past the museum and Harbor Playhouse, I take off to the east. From behind me off my right shoulder is part of the Convention/Culture Center in town. Then, look 90 degrees right from the ship channel, the layout of the city's seawall and perhaps a 3+ mile walkway toward the t-heads and marina. A short walk and you can set your foot on the beginning of Interstate Highway 37...and at that very corner, the Federal Courthouse...
...but look toward the bay. Here, behind the museum you can get a good glimpse of the large ships, tugboats, sailing vessels, shrimpers. [photo 6 of the smaller ship series, the cargo ship is just about to sail UNDER the Harbor Bridge into the Port of Call area]
Along the way taking off to the southwest you can see joggers, bikers, benches to stop and watch the people or the same benches you can turn and face the sea, shorebirds, several bayside miradors [gazebos], date palms, flowering trees, the American Bank Center [the glass building where sports events, conventions, ice shows, and entertainers are on the venue], shaded walkways and more. The Yellow Flowering TREES are yes....of the hibiscus family...
...from here, I ventured northwest beyond the Convention Center to Heritage Park. I'll make it a 3rd post for loading time for my Sunday walk
