The weather this past weekend was wonderful. In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be wearing a light weight jacket in May. That just doesn't happen here.
I headed down to Galveston on Saturday for the Historic Home Tour. I've probably gone on at least 15 of these tours over the years. It's usually hot and humid. Jim and I used to hope for rain because then it would still be hot but the sun would be blocked and conditions would be a little more bearable. Never did we have a cool day, but this year things were different.
The tour runs for two weekends. I had originally planned to go this past Saturday and next Saturday, but with the cooler weather I changed my plans and went Saturday and Sunday. I have a feeling it will be hot and miserable this coming weekend and I wanted to take advantage of the great weather.
It was perfect weather for standing in line although it did warm up a little in the afternoon.
There were some pretty yards. Very tropical looking.
here. I must admit that the city has come back which I thought would probably never happen when I wrote that post back in early 2009. However, if I was living in Galveston I'd be a nervous wreck every time there was something brewing in the Gulf. When you live on the Island you have to evacuate! I don't want to live any closer to the coast than I am right now. I'll just get my Galveston fix with short day trips.
