Galveston Island…

has been the “home” of a lot of our families “firsts”. The hubby and I spent our first few days as a married couple sightseeing around the island. Sure, that weekend I spent a lot of time cursing that island because the weekend we got married just happened to be the same weekend that 400,000 people were, also, converging on the island for a big island party sponsored by a Houston radio station. All the roads were either clogged or closed. It was IMPOSSIBLE to get anywhere on the seawall, except on foot. People kept honking at us when we would take the car out. My husband and I still laugh about that. We were in bumper-to-bumper traffic for hours and the whole time people kept honking away at us. It took us 2 hours to get a couple of miles down the road. Well, I had finally had enough and yelled out, “I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE KEEP HONKING AT US. IT’S ANNOYING!!!!!! They need to quit it”

My calm and level-headed husband, then, pointed out that the reason people were honking at us was because our friends had decorated our car before we left and on the passenger side written in huge letters it said something along the lines of, “Honk at us, we’re newlyweds“. Needless to say, I shut up about the honking.

Just a year later, we took our teeny-tiny son to the beach for the first time. He was so cute. It makes me sad to think that the seawall ( that road on the bottom left-hand side of the picture) is filled with piles and piles of debris.

I wish I could give all of the people affected by the destruction of Hurricane Ike a place to stay. We wish you well. The city of Galveston will be back and better than ever.
