Anyone Day Trip...

So a while back we went in to G city, not spot you nasty peoples, Galveston. The city of Galveston. It has been almost 2 years since our last visit. Things have gotten better since then and it’s starting to look like some recovery has been made since Ike.

Well y’all know how my Beloved likes to take day trips and overnighters and vacations and junk, but because we couldn’t overnight nor vacate we day tripped. So without further ado here we go, yes we, cause you get to do this virtually and that way it is practically free for you. See I do know how valuable your time is.

This is a sideways look down the side of a building.

And this is another building

Yes once more, they have a few buildings there ya know. We were just hanging out and meandering up and down The Strand.

TaDah I knew you were ready for a frontal. Can you see me in the window?

A close up of some fancy a$$ed metal work on…yes you guessed it a building

Wow-sers a Full Frontal view. Wonder where I am in this shot.

Yes I thought we should look the other way, back at where we came from. Now get in the car and let’s go home.

Thank you my dear internets for joining me on this little yet vastly eye popping architectural day trip. Who wants the answer as to which window I was in? That would be the one across the street, really my dears I was taking the picture and could not have possibly been in a window on the third or fourth story of the building I was photographing. Now could I? 'Your average practical joke you slander? Ha, there is nothing average nor practical about my joking. Was this fun for you? I guess it matters not because it was fun for moi!

So what kind of buildings have you looked at lately? Tall ones? Short ones? Skinny ones? Fat Wide Fluffy ones? Invisible ones?

Great place for a day trip. You, know, we haven't been back to Galveston since hurricane Ike. Great to see that it's almost in full swing again.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures!

Thanks for the virtual trip, Paige! I haven't been to Galveston yet for some reason but I hope to visit at some point. From these pics it's clear you had a lovely picturesque time!

I love the way you've captured these buildings Paige, the perspectives are very cool!

Well, I've never been to Galveston--until now! Thanks for taking me along. :D Interesting architecture. I actually prefer to see Fluffy buildings, but they seem hard to find anymore. HA! Thanks for making me smile, Paige. You crack me up.

Nice pictures, Paige. I've never been to Galveston, even though I've lived in Texas for twenty-plus years. I'd better get my gumption up and take a trip, huh? Thanks for sharing with us.

Wonderful pics Paige! That fourth one looks eerie, feels hauted to me.
I've always wanted to go to Galveston, (and some day I will). I have an idea for a story, that I hope to write after the novel I'm working on now, that encompasses the "Great Hurricane of Galveston", (which, if I remember right, was in the late 1800s), and Hurricane Camille in '69, and Hurrican Katrina. If I'm going to write this I must plan on spending a couple years in the Gulf. What's that? You'd be glad to host me at your home you say? :)

Do I win the prize for longest comment?

Glad you made the trip. And that signs of recovery are evident.

Wow, those Big G folks really like their architectural columns. Alot of ornate elements there- I like the blure ones!
Were you in the red light district?

The market ones n the inside of home ones-
