Biked up to downtown and entered Buffalo Bayou heading east. I took the Bayou to just west of Turkey Bend, where I started seeing commercial barge traffic and heavy industry on both sides of the Bayou. The end of the Houston Ship Channel is only a couple miles east.
As the bayou heads east it gets wider and deeper becoming a commercial waterway.
I made it to just west of Turkey Bend where a large barge was being loaded with scrap metal and I turned back to a lovely little take-out spot with a nice dock.
From here I hiked back to my bike at the Sabine Bridge.
