I marked this Independence Day with my very first visit to Lake Houston. A group of us gathered at Deussen Park to paddle, picnic, and celebrate the birth of our nation.
The water was fairly calm during our morning paddle and we explored a pretty little tributary off to the west of the park.
Later in the day the wind and and assortment of power boats stirred up the water but that didn't prevent us from making an afternoon voyage to the east, past the spillway and to the other side of the lake.
Mother nature even chipped in with some fireworks, as a little thunderstorm chased us back to the park a the end of our second paddle. Overall, it was a great July 4th!
