Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." This week we are studying the letter "B" as in BEACH.
Last week I was down in Galveston and planned to take pictures of the BEACH for this week's Alphabe-Thursday, but it was raining. So, I decided to use some pictures of the Galveston BEACH that I took on December 25, 2004...almost ten years ago.
I don't think the people in Buffalo, New York will understand my excitement, but that year on Christmas Eve it snowed.
We had reservations at the Hotel Galvez in Galveston for Christmas dinner. It's about 30 miles from here and it took us over an hour to get there. The snow on the freeway kept traffic to a crawl. This is a picture of the Galveston Causeway Bridge that we have to cross to get on the island.
The hotel is located right across the street from the BEACH. Here's a picture of the Gulf Of Mexico surrounded by snow. To the right is a pier that goes out over the Gulf. This picture was taken from the front of the hotel. You can't really see the BEACH since it's lower than the road. You'll have to take my word for it...there was snow on the BEACH.
People called it the Christmas miracle. It was the first Christmas Eve snow in Houston's history according to Wikpedia.
I've never been more excited about a snowfall. I grew up in New Jersey so it's not like I've never seen snow before. However, snow here is different.
OK, so Buffalo got a little more snow than us.
Now head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thanks for visiting.
