Galveston, Oh Galveston

BEFORE – Galveston after Hurricane Ike

Who sang that song anyway? I think it may have been Glen Campbell, but I may be wrong.

We are in Galveston doing some preliminary looking around for places for the family retreat later this year, and let’s just say Galveston is back from Ike, and it gets harder and harder to see the scars as the tourism skin grows back over.

The constant wind and rainstorms have pretty much eliminated the fishing opportunities, and the fact I haven’t even checked the solunar charts doesn’t help much. Top that with the fact I am pretty much overwhelmed with the crowds and the comeback Galveston has made since Ike, and you have a fishless recipe.

I will bring more on Galveston if it comes along, but certainly back in North Texas by the weekend.

    Yep, that would be Glen Campbell, released in 1969. Great song.
    I took 2 trips to Galveston after Ike helping with the recovery in a small way. Glad to see that things are is still moving along.
