Third Annual Galveston Vacation

The Four Of Us A helpful passerby made this photo of all four of us at Fort San Jacinto Historic Point on Galveston’s northeastern end. From this spot, one can watch massive ships going to and from the ports of both Galveston and Houston, or fish, or just enjoy the gentle breezes off the Gulf[…]

We’re back from our vacation trip to Galveston, Texas. I’m working on formatting and uploading photos, and working up my usual trip-summary blog entry. After that will be a catch-all “since we’ve been back” entry. Stay tuned. Those of you who follow me on Flickr can see the images as I upload them.

2014.12.22-24: Xmas Trip (UPDATED)

2014.11.11.TU: Day Trip to Watauga

(Sorry no photos for the past several days. They’re on Flickr, but I’ve been prioritizing my time and haven’t posted any here. Hopefully I’ll do that later today. It’s probably not a big issue since most of my family was on the road this weekend for my Uncle Gary’s memorial service in South Texas.) For[…]

Here’s the story, as brief as I know how. (Images will follow in a later entry, I assume.)
