This time without the Nikon on board , So no coastal shots ,
I met up with some friends in Galveston that had brought it to me. So I'm going to share some shots of "The Strand" .
The recovery from Hurricane Ike is almost complete on this part of the island .
Other sections still remain in ruins and may never recover .
At the end of the ride we all gathered at our home , I don't know what everybody is waiting for ?
Maybe the potato pie I built before we rode south this morning ?
Just one of the many splendid buildings and style of architecture you will find on the island .
We sit and enjoy treats at The Soda Shop aka: "La Kings Drug Store".
This shot is the "Chocolate Factory" , Yea it's the real deal !!!
One of the many Texas Historical Markers along the streets on "The Strand"
Another shot in the same area ,The Strand and Treemont Ave .
Our group gathers out side the "Chocolate Factory" with the big fat bear !
This shot tells ya everything about how much water was on the island on September 13th ,2008
Rick and myself get caught off guard by a friend .
This was just a cool picture .
