Yesterday was a beautiful day in Galveston and the surrounding area. I think it almost reached 70 degrees.
I noticed some heavy heavy smoke coming from the lot next to us where some guys were burning brush. Yikes!
How do they keep that from climbing up the telephone pole and/or coming over into our area?
As I was standing there marveling at the approach some people take to clearing their property, the fire truck came roaring around the corner!
About mid-morning we said good bye to Donald and Lillian who have been on the NOMADS project for a couple weeks.
Then Pam and I packed a lunch for a picnic and headed east on Galveston Island. We got just past Jamaica Beach and decided we should pick a spot to set up and have lunch. We found a beach access point and set up chairs and just watched the waves, the birds and the fishing for a while.
Guess he was the wrong kind... And he sure was BIG
So we stopped there. Interesting place. The Men's Restroom was out of order so I used the Women's. I couldn't resist.
The bait shop also had some Blue Bell Ice Cream and an interesting sign...
We drove a while longer down the island a little longer and then turned around and headed back to our campsite. Along the way we saw a couple geodesic dome - style beach houses.
Back in the campground we awaited the arrival of more NOMADS.
We had a cookout for the highlight of the evening. It was a bit windy but not too bad. The food was excellent as always.
Then before we knew it the sun went down.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend. And thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
