2011/057: What’s For Dinner?

For Greg and Sara it was the crabs we bought in Kemah that afternoon. Melissa and I had a burrito from Freebirds World Burrito.

2011/056: Kemah

Our little getaway to Houston included a trip to Kemah on Saturday afternoon. First order of business were going to the seafood markets (not many of them left after Hurricane Ike a few years ago, but several are in the process of rebuilding) to buy crabs for dinner.  We left them to hang out in the cooler with some ice, while we went to the Boardwalk. We didn’t stay very long, because it was very crowded. It was foggy, too, and when the sun wasn’t peeking through the clouds, pretty chilly, too.

2009/290: Kemah

Of course no trip to Houston/Galveston is complete without going to Kemah (at least if you ask Greg!)
Sadly, Kemah was hit hard by Hurricane Ike. Some places are rebuilding, and others still look like this. We didn’t make it to the boardwalk because it was early in the morning and they don’t open until 11am.

The reason for going to Kemah? Dinner! Well.. dinner for Greg and the kids. Only seafood I eat is fish!

More From Kemah

This little guy was in front of our hotel. We stayed in Seabrook, which is only minutes from Kemah, and they had pelicans all over town. So cute!
