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)

For a slightly early Christmas, we went to Oklahoma to see my family, and had a wonderful trip — both the visiting and the actual traveling. Plans sprouted up for this trip during our Nov. 11 visit to my brother’s house, when my mother asked about Thanksgiving plans. Not everyone could come for Thanksgiving, but[…]

In 47 hours, we drove nearly 800 miles, attended two birthday parties, went swimming, toured two houses, reconnected with nearly 30 people, met one new person, made over 200 photos, and slept a little bit too. Here’s the story, as brief as I know how. (Images will follow in a later entry, I assume.)

Even before she’d returned from New York, my wife was thinking of a trip to the beach here in Texas. So we went, just two days after she and the kids got home. That’ll explain the break in my blogging. Rest assured, I’m working on an entry about our trip (July 26-28) to Corpus Christi,[…]

At breakfast, I talked with RLF about the trip she’s taking tomorrow. She looked at her U.S. states placemat and pointed at New York. “We’re going all the way to here?” she asked. I nodded. “From here?”, pointing at Texas. “Yes,” I said. “It’s a long way,” she noted dubiously. “How are we going to[…]

Just a quick post to let everyone know we arrived safely home yesterday (2014.06.23) at about 17:20 local time. All the normal getting-home stuff happened (laundry, eating, showering, kids crying, Daddy dumping photos from memory cards onto computer, etc.) I’m working through the images from our trip right now, but I anticipate that it (and[…]
