|Mom and son, Bert, taken at Galveston, TX on 9/20/14|
Bert and family have their own vacation rental business (bestofthewestgalveston) in that area.. They have about 15 rental properties (part of Pointe West Resort) --so as you can imagine, they stay very busy. They rent condos/houses on both the bay side of the island and the beach side. What a beautiful area down there. If you ever want info on any of their properties, contact Bert (Tre Wilhite) at the link above.
Today's tour will begin on the west end --where Bert lives and works. Then we'll head east to Galveston and tour the "Strand" area (downtown with lots of shops and restaurants). After that we will head to the east end of the island and take the ferry across to the Bolivar Peninsula. (You can see these areas on the map I provided.)
HERE. Here is a picture of the Gulf of Mexico in Galveston --taken on 9/20/14. The sea was rough on this day ---which I'm sure made surfers happy!!!!
Well---after turning around and taking the ferry back to Galveston, we headed back to the west end --and then back to Kemah for dinner with more friends... That was our day ---and our tour of Galveston. Hope you enjoyed it. As I said, there will be one more post from this area sometime --but I wanted to give you the tour first.
Have a great week and enjoy NATURE---if your weather permits!!!!! ha... We've had rain-rain-rain recently --but I'm not complaining since we needed it so much!!!!!
