I turned 55 today. My husband told me I could take up to two days to celebrate. I chose one, and I chose Kemah. Not such a great idea. We should have remembered that places like that are pretty much closed down on Mondays. Sure enough. We did have a nice drive over there....fiddled around for a little bit, then headed to Galveston. I always like Galveston.
Wish this place was in
Just the normal fare....
except for the manatee size
Shots of the deserted shopping areas in Kemah.
Had I remembered the Monday thing,
we would have gone on Tuesday.
And I would have birthdayed myself
all day long today, too.
These bushes were electric green.
A picture doesn't do them justice.
I don't like bushes, but these were pretty neat.
Trying to remember why we didn't
go get some coffee.
I thought it would be fun to get a selfie with the Icee Bear.
A guy and his family walked by and saw my struggle.
So he took a good picture.
Thanks whoever you were!
Every place has one of these little leaky water parks.
This must be for insurance purposes
because nobody in their right minds think that
kids aren't going to run around in these play areas.
Unless, there were so many signs in the way, that you couldn't.
I love these birds.
The white is so white and the black is so black.
But then.....my third favorite color is gray.
I can't win.
The same people that let their kids run around in those
slick water parks.....probably feed the birds, too.
The signs that are everywhere are CRAZY.
Define that please.
I don't want to stand in a little area and feel
You know a horse will throw a shoe?
Well, a beach bum threw his flip-flops......
Before leaving Kemah, we stopped at Sonic.
Of course we pulled into this one.
What a nice sign to let people know.
We're randomly in Galveston, but hardly ride the ferry.
Sometimes I just don't want my hair messed up.
Sometimes the weather is just pathetic, or we're short on time.
Today was perfect.
I look around at others....
It seems like only MY hair is messed up.
Last stop was Salt Grass Steak House
This was our view.
Everything was very nice....until my husband realized
I have yet to find something that will take the place of a coffee filter. I like to think I always have my ducks in a row, but obvidently I do not. If I did, I would have coffee filters. They're cheap, easy to find, not heavy, but NOOOOOO. What a way to start a morning.
