Today, we would be traveling about 125 miles to Galveston, Texas.
The last time we were in Galveston was July, 2008, just a few months before Hurricane Ike. We are staying at Galveston Island State Park. When we were here before, there were 150 sites on the beach. Now, there are only 36. The sites are not right on the beach, but are about 100 yards away-just a short walk from the rv. We still can see the waves from our window.
Rudy and Roscoe, our two pugs, loved walking on the sand. They weren't too sure about the water though.
After Hurricane Ike, there was talk about not reopening this park after just about everything had been destroyed. The community would not let that happen and created the Friends of Galveston State Park. Countless volunteer hours were spent bringing the park back and it is still a wonderful place!
