Happy to hear you enjoyed the trip - I was wondering how the trip had gone for your family.
Buying t-shirts and a beer at the same store - LOL - I think I know to which store you are referring.

Galveston was ugly before Ike and even uglier now.

Yes, obviously you're not here to rock the boat or anything.

Guess your mother never taught you:

If you have nothing nice to say......don't say anything at all

Update on our weekend visit to Galveston on the weekend of March 20,2009. We had a great visit. We drove by the beach and found them well visited. We didn't go on the beach, but then my mom is soon to be 80 and the beach isn't her thing. I was surprised at how many restaurants are open. My observation is that the places that most tourist see have had tremendous amounts of work on them. We did drive down to where you catch the ferry, and looking at the residential areas along that road was very sad, but even there...you saw people working. My feeling was that Galveston is battered & bruised, but she's getting back up and needs our help. We will go back & unless you just don't have a heart, you should too.

Thanks for sharing Jamaica....I believe Galveston will be better than before. It is really making progress and the water lately has been a very beautiful aquamarine. Beaches are looking better and the dune resoration projects we worked on and others are really coming along.
