Beach reflections in beautiful Galveston, Texas

On many visits as a single girl livin’ in the H-town, I’ve visited the downtown area of Galveston, Texas – to bike the seawall, see the Victorian parade on the Strand, visit a historic hotel, see Moody Gardens, kayak on the bay . . . yet I never swam in the ocean!!

Many months ago,  we planned our first visit to the west end of Galveston with our wonderful friends from Allen, Texas to enjoy the beautiful quiet beaches and each other’s company.   It was my first #twomamafourboy trip.   We did a dolphin tour near the harbor, visited the historic Elissa sailing vessel, and a wonder crab cake lunch at Fisherman’s Warf, enjoyed the beach, the pool, and relaxing.

Our little beach house was in a nice peaceful area and the boys really enjoyed two surprising things – riding around the community in the little golf cart, and crabbing on the beach at night.  They would beg us to take out the golf cart, literally beg.     Crabbing under a full moon was delightful.  The moonlight, the coolness, the breezes invigorate me!   It’s really so fun to see the boys burn off the midnight oil running around as little lights on the beach discovering big crabs, little sand crabs under a gorgeous moon.  (iPhone photo there!)

This one was all for me to capture my loves in a beach reflection image this summer. Remember we only get 18 summers with our little loves!  I do hear if you pay for it, they will come!
