Galveston Island State Park



This is a small park on the Gulf side of the island with a better beach than Sea Rim State Park.  The sea was a little rough but the water was warm.









Apparently the fish stay well off shore.  This avid fisherman was trying to get closer.  Seems like a lot of trouble to me.








I had not realized that just going to the beach was so dangerous.  Fortunately, I had Marilee to protect me.






The island is flat and only a few feet above the level of the Gulf.  Apparently, from the architectural style, the sea visits the island occasionally.  








We had a pretty good thunderstorm last night; about 4 inches of rain and wind about 35 knots.
