After NASA Naomi and I headed to the Kemah Boardwalk for dinner. (The picture of the sign was taken at the end of the evening) We ate at Saltgrass Steakhouse and then went for a walk along the boardwalk.

We also took a ride on "The Beast" a speedboat that goes out into the Gulf of Mexico. It was interesting. It went really fast and the speed was fun. They took sharp turns trying to get the passengers wet but no one was really into it because it was so late in the day. The sunset on the way back in was pretty though.

Naomi was really surprised at how quiet it was. She said that normally the boardwalk is packed with people. This night it was VERY quiet.

There was a food dispenser so you could feed the catfish. It was crazy. You throw in maybe a dozen pieces of food and immediately the water is CHURNING with these ugly critters. I'm not sure how the ducks swam with all those fish there.

One of the popular parts of Kemah is the midway and amusement park rides. According to one website, with the closing of the last Six Flags in the area, Kemah is now the largest amusement park destination in the Houston area. I just really liked the way they painted the ground.
Kemah's a cute little town. It's a great place to eat dinner and kill some time.
