Brays Bayou is a normally beautiful, varied, and peaceful landscape, more concrete than natural, unlike Buffalo Bayou, the mother bayou of Houston.
It meanders 31 miles, from near George Bush Park, in West Houston, east to enter Buffalo Bayou as it heads to the Houston Ship's Channel.
I ride my bike along the bike trail to and from work, a couple blocks from where the bayou goues under the freeways at West Loop/Post Oak.
This area was under water after the storm of Memorial Day 2015. This photo was taken 2 days ago.
I live about 3 blocks east of where the bayou passes under Beechnut, near Sam Houston Freeway/Beltway 8. There are apartments and streets beyond the right tree line, to the freeway, and more apartments, including mine, beyond the left tree line.
The bayou goes south through a private golf course before heading east alongside Braeswood Blvd., 10 miles or so, past The Medical Center area. This section didn't get near to flooding last year.
That brings me to last night and this morning....
