Wonderful photos of Houston. The first one, though, kills me. Look at all the ugly highways...Dallas has them too, I know. They are just ugly.

I really like the picture from space. I have an idea how to make Galveston's water blue. Build a dyke like the one in Texas City and extend it from the east beach out to the ocean for a couple of miles. That might deflect all the silt and mudd from the Shipchannel out to the east allowing the blue water just a couple of miles off the cost to wash into the beach. Just an idea. :P

Yeah, but tons of that silt comes from all of the drainage from the bayous and stuff, not just the channel.

Actually that's not a bad idea at all. I wonder how effective it would be.

I know someone who goes deep sea fishing from time to time and I remember laughing when he said the water in the Gulf is blue. Of course the further one gets away from Galveston the more blue the water gets. It would be nice if we could enjoy some of that "blueness" at the actual beach.

Galveston's brown water really does detract from its setting as a beach. If they did that, Galveston would turn from "Waco by the sea" to "River Oaks by the Sea" in just a few months.

yes, lets block the water from coming into Galveston bay, creat big lakes, and stop all total traffic of boats going into the port & ship channel. Bright idea, very bright.

Well, not only is it drainage from the bayous that empty out into the ship channel as well as the bay that puts out all that silt. A good portion of that comes from the currents that wind their way through the intercoastal waterway. It's those very same currents and silt that help with the wetlands that provide what little greenspace we have along the shoreline.

That is if George W. Decide we don't need wetlands anymore.
