In Sight!

Location: Galveston, TX (High 44, Low 38)


The weather has been pretty constant, but not in a good way – cloudy, foggy, rainy. We did have a couple days in the low 60s, but they were still pretty dreary. After today though, we have a string of days coming up where we may actually see some sunshine!



The highlight of the past few days was meeting Harry’s niece Kelly and her family on Sunday afternoon. We had been hoping for a nice day but it was a bit cool and foggy.




We had a good time anyway –  enjoying a great lunch at Tortuga Mexican Kitchen.





Harry and I both ordered chimichangas and they were SO good.





Then we went for a walk on the beach.





With the fog, the views were limited.

There is an ocean right beyond those rocks!




The kids got to feed a pelican.












After walking for a bit more, it was time to say goodbye.




Today it is rainy and windy. We may get outside for a walk if it stops, but otherwise we are sticking close to home. After today we finally have a stretch of what looks like nice days coming up. We may get those chairs out of the basement yet.


  1. Isn't it great to have the freedom to either wait for good weather or move to find better weather. Hang in there, it could get worse.....or better....who knows?

  2. That plate of Mexican food sure looks good! Love that stuff. Hope you have some great weather and can enjoy some leisure time in those chairs!

  3. Yes the forecast is much better for the next week or so, we'll be heading into LA on Sunday. We had our best Mexican dinner while in Houston. So nice family got to visit too bad the weather didn't cooperate.
