TEXAS!

Here are some photos from our move - Augusta, Georgia to Houston, Texas.  We will be moving back to Alaska next year probably sometime between March and May.  We like it here in Texas so far.  I love all the USA flags flying all over the city and the Texas flags.  People are really super nice.  I have good feelings about being here!!



Welcome to Mississippi


The picture above and below is an elevated highway we rode on going over the swamps.  This elevated highway was 18 miles long.


Welcome to Louisiana


I just thought this was a really cool bridge.  I can't remember what port we were passing, but the boats in the water here were very cool.

Welcome to Texas!  Yee-Haw, y'all!

Notice the speed sign.  The white speed sign is for day driving.
The black speed sign is a different speed limit for night driving.
At night, you can't see the white day speed sign because it's non-reflective.  
How cool is that?

Houston!  Notice the large USA Flag.  They are everywhere in Houston.  I love it!

Gosh another bridge.  That's different.  NOT!

We have a few of these spaghetti bridges in Columbia, but here in Houston, these things are everywhere!  And some of them are so very high.

UPDATE

I know it's been a while since we've posted.


We moved from Anchorage, Alaska back to South Carolina last July.  There were some family matters that needed us closer.

We were in South Carolina just a few weeks before moving to Georgia to be closer to my hubby's work.


Now we are moving to Houston, Texas this month. We will be there on a contract job through the same Alaska Company hubby worked for before.

Then some time between March and May will be moving back to Anchorage, Alaska!  Yeah!  We are so excited and can't wait to get back to Alaska.

We will be posting pictures of our travels on the way.

Smiles to you all!

BACK TO SOUTH CAROLINA :(


After 9 months of what felt like a VACATION in Alaska, we have moved back to South Carolina. :(

One day, we will be back to Alaska.  We sure did love living there.  It's beautiful; the temperatures are more to our liking; the wildlife is amazing... I could go on and on.

Here are some pictures from our ride home.  It took us through 11 States and 3 Canadian Territories; 6 days; thousands of miles; gorgeous scenery; spectacular views; numerous wildlife sitings.....  Not to mention the herd of wild buffalo on spread across both sides of the highway we had to travel through - now THAT was interesting!
