Waiting for Summer
Lens: DFA 28-105 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Kemah, TX 
Posted By: Sailor, 04-21-2018, 06:13 AM

The Kemah Texas Boardwalk, one of the many ventures of the Landry's corporation, is an amusement park combined with a plethora of restaurants. The place is located right on Galveston Bay and attracts mobs in the summertime and on weekends.

Here are three shots I took while having lunch there a little over a week ago on a Thursday afternoon. The emptiness is downright eerie to someone who usually sees the place teeming with humanity. Despite the desolate atmosphere suggested by the photos, the restaurants seemed to be thriving.

Yeah, it's a different place now - I forgot to mention along with all the rides, including a big, wooden roller coaster, there's a marina and luxury hotel on the premises.

You and the K-1 really captured beautiful images!

Is this "Tom Landry", formerly Dallas Cowboys football coach?

Thanks much for the kind words.

Landry's is a sizable company with many restaurant brands, attractions (e.g. Golden Nugget) and even the Houston Rockets. I don't think the original Landry's restaurants had anything to do with Tom Landry - but, hey, what do I know?
