I still have some vacation time to burn before the end of the year, so I flew off to Las Vegas for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Here are some photos from my walking about this evening.
One of the best sights along the Seawall in Galveston is the Pleasure Pier. If you have been, and are missing the view, you can check out the surfcam. It will remind you how nice it is to have the opportunity to visit in person.
A collection of Hermit Crabs for purchase can be found at Murdoch’s in Galveston. Also, a little known secret about this gift shop on the Seawall is that they have a great patio overlooking the Gulf with rocking chairs to relax in for a while. But still, the Hermit Crabs are the most fun in the place.
If you find yourself in Galveston on a cloudy day, the Aquarium Pyramid at Moody Gardens is a great place for some indoor fun.
Located on the East side of Galveston Island, Beachtown is always one of my favorite places to launch a sunset walk on the beach. The homes are beautiful and if you time things right, you might just have the whole beach to yourself.
Inside the Cockrell Butterfly Center you will find both steamy, and cool relaxing environments. There is plenty of wonder, including plants, flowers, iguanas, and of course butterflies. There is also a large waterfall which provides a nice background audio track as you enjoy the different levels of the exhibit.
