So... You know, it's that time of year when we all get to, or at least should get to, "get away" and re-charge our 'batteries.' There are a million different ways that we each choose to do just that. Last week, for us, we chose to drive just 20 minutes from where we live and spend a few days having fun in the sun near and in the water. Below: Our stay in Galveston at The San Luis Hotel...

We had two choices of water that were "right there" for the picking. My Little Bride will always choose the water with chlorine over the water with salt. Ever see the movie Jaws??? Well, someone said to us last week... "There are things out there that will eat you!" Enough said for my Woman. She likes to see her

And when we weren't at the pool or EATING... We spent some time on the Strand, one of our favorite hangouts.

|Tola... A Favorite: You can Clothes Shop, have Libations, and use the Restroom here... :-)|
|As close as Donna will ever get to being under water in the Ocean...|
|Ooops!!! How did my Baby sneak in here??? Smiling...|
|Fixin' to enter another Fave... Yaga: 'Mo Bettah'|
We didn't spend a whole lot of time on the Balcony, but when we did, the sights were amazing...
|Someone was flying a Kite...|
|Someone was 'Living Quite Dangerously'|
OK... Can you tell??? The Pelican's were everywhere!!! Above us, below us, and everywhere else and the Seagulls were looking for someone to break the rules and feed them. And when no one did, they just scooped in and stole food that was unattended for a bit.
