Last weekend I went down to Galveston for the annual Historic Homes Tour. It runs for two weekends, so I'll be going down again this Saturday to finish the tour. However, I managed to take pictures of some of the pretty YARDS I saw last weekend to share with you for Alphabe-Thursday. I'll try and share the homes another time.
Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." (Hurry and get well Ms. Jenny!!!)
Most of the yards were small. These people stole my idea. I plan to hang some boards on a tree with the mileage to all the places we've lived. I believe these are places they've visited. It's a very colorful backyard with a tropical feel.
There were even pretty chickens in one YARD.
There was also some new construction on the tour. These homes were built to look like the older homes. They face the beach and are built to withstand winds of 150 mph. (If a hurricane was coming I don't think I'd hang around to see if that was true.) This was the view out the back. I guess this is called a marsh? I bet there's good crabbing there.
And if you look in the other direction you can see downtown Galveston.
And this is the view to the front. Behind the condominium is the Gulf. There are more houses similar to this one to the left and more under construction.
I'd rather have one of the historic homes anyway.
Now head to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thanks for visiting.
