Allthego at the Butterfly House
Well today we were at the Houston Museum of Natural Science downtown. First off we had a look at an IMAX film ‘Born to be Wild’ in 3D. This was about saving orphaned baby elephants in Kenya and orangutans in Borneo. All very mushy but some great photography. After this we went for a ride on a red train in Hermann Park and lunch by the McGovern Lake, burgers and chips. Back at the Museum we looked through the Butterfly House, which not only had butterflies of all shapes and sizes but also a rather large Iguana which would have caused surprise if bumped into in the night. There was also a big display of all sorts of insects and the like. Many cock roaches. An interesting item on dangerous frogs, multi coloured little things from down in South America, quite poisonous. Also strolled around the park and took in the state of the autumn colours and energetic wildlife, mostly squirrels. Mitch picked us up around 4.30pm and we returned to our lodgings in Cypress enjoying the Houston rush hour on the freeway.
