Galveston is steeped in fascinating history, mystery, tragedy, and romantic ambiance. For a small introduction to it's history, click here. While taking a driving tour of the island, I found many wonderful sites, each with different personalities just perfect for staging different scenes in my book. I snapped 122 photos of unique, quirky, ordinary, beautiful, nostalgic, and captivating spots.

was quiet, we could actually converse over lunch without shouting. The food was good, but sitting next to a sailing ship with full rigging was better!
We loved the aquarium and Rain Forest exhibits at Moody Gardens, so much to see and learn. We sat and watched the sharks, otters, seal, and penguins, awesome creatures. Walking along the upper walkway in the Rain Forest Pyramid I almost stepped on a monkey who was taking his afternoon nap on the path. Thankfully, a biologist was standing nearby watching over the little thing and saved him.
This morning is reserved for updating my blog, recording notes, and organizing photos. This afternoon I'll start the next scene on Texas-Sized Love.
The weather here in Galveston is cloudy with the sun peeking through from time-to-time. The waves coming in on the beach are gentle with a little white-capping when they break. What's next on the agenda? Definitely a good steak, more tours, and shopping.
Thank you for sharing this journey with us.
