Yesterday was a perfect day to go for a drive. So of course, that’s what I did. I drove down to Galveston and went to the beach. The trip was as scenic as it was relaxing. Here are some pictures I took along the way:
It was a beautiful day on the beach. The weather was ideal.
The calming sound of waves tumbling over the sand put my mind at ease.
My beach towel.
This is a Portugese Man o’ War. You gotta watch out for these guys. Their sting is more painful than a jellyfish. Being a clueless land lubber, I thought these were just platic wrappers people had left on the beach. I sat down right beside one. Fortunately, a guy came over and kept me from getting stung. Now I know.
Brave surfer swims to colorful pier. Meanwhile, hungry shark swims to brave surfer.
A gorgeous view of Galveston Bay.
The road to Galveston took me through downtown Houston.
Pero no se como escribirlo. : P
On the way, I spotted an entire field covered with BLUEBONNETS. It was a spectacular sight!
These pretty Indian Blankets also caught my eye.
On nearly every hillside, there were wildflowers dancing in the breeze.
These plants also have yellow buds, but they are a bit more prickly.
A pastoral scene.
A house on a hill.
Uh oh. I think this city boy just took one picture too many. Time for me to go!
