Both the Houston Museum of Natural Science and Cockrell Butterfly Center were located within the larger Hermann Park. We luckily got to catch the last rays of daylight outside after visiting the museums.
Lilly found a Japanese garden in the park.
Unfortunately, before we walked too far, we had to leave because the garden was closed! Turns out that it closed at 5, not 6, in the winter. So sad! It was a beautiful, serene, peaceful place that I’d like to return to next time I’m in town.
Further beyond was the zoo. The layout of this park reminded me so much of St. Louis’s Forest Park! You can also visit like, a bajillion things inside without ever stepping out of the premises.
Finally, I saw this thing chase a goose then jump into the water and start swimming. It’s like my worst nightmare. A cat-sized rodent that can swim?! As much as I find it disgusting, I’d like to know what this thing is called. Someone please tell me?
Ha, ending on that lovely note…what are your favorite parks in your city?
Thanks for reading!
