Galveston and Goldenrod

Galveston is recovering from Hurricane Ike, and many businesses have re-opened and houses been repaired. The high seawall that was necessitated by the complete destruction after the hurricane of a hundred years ago did its job and protected much of the town proper, but some of the structures closest to the ocean were devastated as seen in these shots taken along the Gulf coastline…

We finally got to meet Goldenrod, a friend from the Internet, sharing breakfast for nearly 2 hours before we boarded our cruise ship. She has many Internet friends, but this was the first time she had ever actually sat down with a blogging pal – and the same went for us. The conversation was non-stop and the time flew by way too quickly.

Thanks again, Goldenrod, for driving down to meet us.
