Thanks to my mother, I grew up on the beach. Basically. We were there nearly every other day in the summer months during my childhood south of Houston. It was only a 20 minute drive, so it was a cheap day for us.
Decades later, the drive is now 6 hours, none of us have tans, all of us have had our clothes shrink over the years and most of us hate being hot and sandy, but we still love Galveston.
Next week we take off for another week of fun in the sun and I can’t wait!
