Island Fun

Today's photos of our recent Galveston trip are the last I'll put up. If you missed the others, you can view them here and here.

I saved the best for last. Pure pleasure . . . mostly beaches and Tiki Huts!

So without further commentary, I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Just beautiful. I can hear the surf and feel that amazing sea breeze. There's no place like the beach, is there?

Terry Odell said...

Thanks for sharing these (and I'll be waiting for you to be my Friday Field Trip guest!). There's something about the beach, although I'm enjoying my mountains now.

Joanne - Those memories are still strong for me, too. The beach is my favorite place.

Terry - I'll be in touch next month. I need to finish my WIP first. I like the mountains, too, but the beach is still my favorite.

LR said...

Sigh. I'd love to be there right now!

Is that 2nd picture a fancy hotel or apartment building?

I love these pictures because beaches & tiki huts are definitely where I'd love to hang out 24/7. How relaxing it looks!

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Me, too. Sigh.

Lisa - It's the Hotel Galvez. More about it here:

Loved all the pictures of your trip. They are quite lovely and remind me of the great trips we have taken there.

Savannah said...

Carol, wish I was there right now... just gorgeous!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

What lovely pictures, Carol! I could certainly spend some time in one of those huts. I'm so glad you had such a restful time.

Carol Kilgore said...

Maryann - If you can't be there, nothing is better than photos plus memories.

Savannah - It is gorgeous. I hope you get to visit one day.

Elspeth - I may or may not have enjoyed enough hut time for both of us :)

Michelle Teacress said...

Oh, how I love the beach. My favorite is Little Corona in Irvine, CA. Lots of tide pools. :)

Manzanita said...

I did enjoy the photos. I lived on the beach for 25 years and just this morning talked to an old friend from that part of my life. Now, looking at your pictures really brings back memories. Thanks

Love the tiki huts, esp the one with the tree popping through the roof -- and the two rocking chairs looking out to the gulf. Love it!

Clarissa Draper said...

Cool! Can't wait to go there this fall.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cool photos! I would've been disappointed if there weren't tiki huts...

Carol Kilgore said...

Michelle - Sounds very cool. Haven't been there.

Manzanita - Beach living is a different way of life.

Helen - I LOVED that one! It still makes me smile :)

Clarissa - Hope you have a great time.

Ales - I would've been disappointed without them, too!

The Happy Whisk said...

Very nice photos. Hope you're doing well. And enjoying the sun. Spring just started this past week, here and I love it.

Lydia K said...

Tiki Huts! Too perfect. Thanks for sharing. I wish I was on vacation now!

Carol Kilgore said...

The Happy Whisk - Doing great. Enjoy your spring!

Lydia - Me, too. Again - LOL.

Talli Roland said...

More wonderful photos. I had the yummiest seafood gumbo in Galveston! I used to work in Longview, TX, and I drove down for a long weekend.

Julie said...

I loved all of the pictures! Made me wish I could head to Galveston right now. My favorite picture is the very last one, how I would love to be sitting in one of those chairs!

Thanks for sharing the great photos of your trip.

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - I had some yummy seafood gumbo there, too! And I've been to Longview :)

Julie - Same here - about the chairs. It's fun to share.

Holly Ruggiero said...

Oh just lovely. I could definitely spend some time there. ;)

Glynis Jolly said...

I went back and viewed the other ones again. It sure looks like you had the time of your life.

Carol Kilgore said...

Happy Whisk & Holly - I'm pretty sure my responses got Bloggered last week.

Glynis - It was wonderful. I'm ready to go back!
