Sunday (October 11 2009) we went to Galveston. I was really looking forward to a day at the beach, but it was chilly and drizzly…
the seagulls didn’t seem to mind, though.
You can still see the damage from Hurricane Ike. The Flagship Hotel was hit pretty hard, even the ramp to the hotel parking lot was destroyed. Even my favorite souvenir shop (Murdoch’s) was closed, but we saw painters there and it looks like they will be reopening at some point.
The water was warm…
…and we had fun, looking for seashells.
Then we had lunch at the best place in town, The Spot, before heading back to the hotel.
