Muddying. Open waters
How these get a pass is anyone’s guess. Obviously, the guys are not treading quietly or lightly. Boldly muddy the water, and everything else.
How the high and mighty stall when the highway patrol spots a commercial truck without functional mud flaps.
Yet the off road enthusiasts drive past ticket free.
Seriously. With tires sticking far outside the fenders, fenders miniaturized or totally gone, and with deep tread all the way to the edges of the tires slinging gunk everywhere?
Oh, It’s a sport. Totally excused.
Sorry. Couldn’t see that for all the mud flipped on the windshield.
On a clear day or in a clear pool, you can see quite a bit of Houston from the trendy pools.
Definition of open water?
There’s the glass bottomed sky pool at the Market Street Towers hanging over the edge of the 43rd floor like the sky bridge over the Grand Canyon. Look up to see a bit of the skyline, tan lines, with tug free swimsuits advisable.
Rather insist your afternoon water play is educational? Study your geography with water wings in the Marriott Marquis rooftop infinity pool and lazy river flowing in the shape of Texas.
Yes, there is a bridge or two over untroubled waters
River tubing is big in Texas.
Doesn’t have to be very warm for the locals to stow plastic bag luggage and head to the river.
Depending on the season’s weather, local rivers like New Braunfels‘ Comal offer as much thrills as those in Colorado.
Might want to avoid the Spring weekend crowds which tend to get a bit rowdy with more than a few inebriated participants. Cover the kiddies ears and their eyes occasionally. (Hey, they’ve seen worse on TV and in movies.)
So offering a Disney-ized version, the Marriott Marquis gets visitors flowing with local color – mud free!
Bound to be the choice of water marks who are attracted by the naiads and not deterred by cannonballs. (The splashy into the pool cannonballs – not the ammunition. I know it’s Texas, but really. Let it go.)
Unseen below, the stuck-in-the-mud commuters are just trying to get home.
