The Getway...

 We did it..
Hubby and I loaded up the rental pick up...
headed South...
we got a later start than we wanted...
but we were on the road...
everything went smooth...traffic easy...
until we hit outside Houston...
it was slow.. bumper to bumber...
it always is in Houston...
 after we got away from Houston...
it was smooth sailing down 45....
we were staying in Seabrook...
which is a small city on the bay...
Nasa Space Center is located there...
lot's of boats and yachts....
 

Saturday morning we got up bright and early..
we were on the road at 6:15 am...
headed to Galveston...
we decided we liked it much better...
more things that we enjoy there...
we spent the day there on Saturday...
went back to our hotel late...
got up early Sunday...packed up our belongings...
checked out of the hotel...
headed back to Galveston for the day....

while in Galveston we spent most of our time at the State Park...
we have a one year pass at all Texas State Parks...
so it was free to us...
Hubby waded out into the ocean to fish...
I played on the beach...
sunning...relaxing...taking photos...
picking up shells...
He caught several nice fish...but released them...
all on a rattle trap lure...
the other fisherman couldn't believe he was catching fish
on it...I'm thinking it may become a new trend there...
we got back in last night around 8pm...
missing the ocean already...
but happy to back to see my Hotrod...
we brought him back 2 hermit crabs...
they are now named Hermie...and Euwa...
more beach stories...and photos to come...

It looks like you had a great getaway. I have great memories of going to Galveston when I was a kid and of taking my kids there when they were little.

Glad you two had a fun time!! Little Lady and Family were at the beach this weekend, too! Can you believe I have never been to a Texas coast? Pretty amazing. I think my Daughter in Law is planning to celebrate Little Lady's first birthday at Surfside, so I'll be there later this year! I love the water and the sand... and the fresh seafood! Also glad you made it safely home to your Hotrod. ;) blessings ~ tanna

Gorgeous photos. Can't wait to see the rest and dream about our vacation since we aren't going anywhere this summer. Right or wrong, we just can't seem to find the time to get away.
