Since Galveston was only about an hour away we spent a pleasant afternoon driving down to take a look at it.

There is an amusement park on the beach that looked fun.

Finding these two rather large men sharing a surry style bicycle made me chuckle.  I think they're trying to look the part of a pair of bad boy bikers, but it's just not working.

We thought we could make a big circle on our way back, but the road ended.  While looking for a way to continue we saw a lot of huge ships.

But not to worry, there was a ferry to take us over the water and prevent a lot of backtracking.  Best part was it was totally free of charge.

Long Live the Queen of Galveston


  1. been quite a few years since i've been down there. the two 'tough guys' made me laugh!

  2. (and now i've got glen campbell stuck in my head...)

  3. I wanted to take that ferry over to the peninsula, but every time I planned it the weather was nasty thus stayed home. I'm a fair weather explorer :-)

  4. Galveston, O' childhood still lives there (and at the Texas City Dike). This place was magical for a Chicago kid. I literally lived here for four years. Thanks for the memories, my friend.

  5. Oh wow, I just love that surrey style bicycle. Where can I get one? Oh my, Pogo and I could have so much fun with it!! You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  6. p.s. I forgot to mention that I love those gulls. They are so different from the ones around here.
