I’ve been so absent in blogland this week it's not even funny. There are reasons out the wazoo, but if I told you what a crazy week this had been you might not believe me, so let’s just leave it at that. I am happy to say, however, that it ended on a restful note.
Thursday found me and the twin sister enjoying time together on Galveston Island. Galveston may not have the waters of the Emerald Coast, but I happen to love its quaintness and the rich history that belongs to the Island. Not to mention, it’s so close to home.
You gotta have seafood when you go to Galveston. You just gotta.
After finishing up dessert, we drove down the seawall to one of the many parks and enjoyed the evening breeze. No matter how old we get, we reserve part of the day for acting just plain silly.
It wasn’t in the initial plan, but we were awake long before sunrise on Friday, so we drove down to IHOP, ate a big breakfast and watched the day break (this was taken from the restaurant; check out that sliver of moon high in the sky).
After paying the tab, we walked along the beach, captivated, as always, by the sun rising, in all of it’s majesty.
For some reason, shopping always makes things better.
After a little time spent soaking up some rays, watching the travel of birds overhead, it was time to say goodbye ... for now.
I hope your week is wrapping up nicely. Can't wait to find a few minutes (hours) for visiting with you. Until next time, sweet friends, press on.
