Galveston – Wednesday

We woke to a cloudy day, but comfortable temperature-wise, and decided a walk on the beach was in order after breakfast.

Then down to The Strand across the Island

Where I made a friend at the chocolate shop (and of course we bought just a little chocolate)

Time for dinner

Inside, the lighting:

Dinner was a salad and fried oysters and shrimp with onion rings and fries. Delicious!

Oh my!! It’s now pouring down rain outside, so maybe if we have an Irish Coffee, it’ll stop before we need to walk to our car.

As we drink the coffee we watch the ships come into port

And look at the statue at the end of Pier 21

The rain did not stop, so Susan ran to the car and came back to pick us up. She was drenched, we were dry and feeling coddled.

Tomorrow – a tour of the carved trees and some of the old mansions on the Island.

    Even though it looked like a gray day, you seem to have found some lovely things to see. I love the painted sea turtle sculpture. And the architecture on some of those older buildings is quite interesting. X
