Before I was able to start working in Beaumont, I decided to make the hour and a half journey to check out Galveston. For those of you who haven't been there, Galveston is right on the Gulf of Mexico, not far from Houston. It has a nifty historic district called The Strand, that is filled with shops and restaurants. I had a tasty lunch, browsed through some of the shops, and checked out the art fair that was going on in the streets. Then I took a drive over to the Gulf to check that out.
Although I have been told that there was a lot of hurricane damage in Galveston, I only saw a small amount of it. Maybe I wasn't in the right part of town, or maybe they have already repaired a lot of the damage. At any rate, I really liked Galveston, and could spend more time there.
My latest stop was New Orleans, where I came to meet friends for Halloween. Can you think of a better place to be for Halloween than New Orleans??? Stay tuned, I got some great photos.
Hey! Why didn't I get to go to the beach? I love the beach. There are tons of stinky things to roll around in on the beach. Once I even found a seal flipper to roll on, and boy was it ripe. The Staff was REALLY mad at me for that one.
