Life is going smoothly down here on Galveston island. We are about 30 minutes west of Galveston so quite the hike. After not visiting the Texas Coast for a number of years, we are sadly reminded as to why we don't. Our trip has been great, the Texas Coast is just dirty and not pretty. The waters are dirty, full of jelly fish and too many sharks for me. We are very spoiled in our travels as is the other family we are here with. We like white sand, clear waters and delicious food everywhere. While we are thankful for our trip with friends, we quickly learned this will be our last vacation to the Texas Coast in this area.
