Galveston Part II: The Finale

Here’s more highlights from my Galveston trip!

We went under Murdochs to get some cool shots with the beams behind us.

Here’s one of the few pictures of me in front of the camera!

We really wanted to visit Pleasure Pier (in the background), but it was closed for the season!

Murdochs has a beautiful porch (with a bar) that is right on the ocean.  They even had rocking chairs!  This pigeon decided to join us, and I got some shots of a seagull sitting on an old beam below.

Pleasure Pier again.  Too bad it was closed!

On Thursday we went on the ferry that goes from Galveston to Port Bolivar, and we saw some dolphins!  DSC_2109 logo DSC_2113 logo

We sailed by Seawolf Park where they have an old ship and submarine (they aren’t air conditioned).  It was cool to see them from afar though.

Basically the only time we saw pelicans was at Port Bolivar.  Look how many there are!

Dolphin!  The best shot I got.  Apparently they don’t jump much outside of Seaworld.DSC_2177 logo DSC_2187 logo DSC_2192 logo

This is the S.S. Selma.  Read more about it’s interesting history here.

After our adventures on Thursday, we went to the beach at sunset.  Earlier that day, Jon and I fed the seagulls, and there were LOTS of them, flying overhead and everything, and then they literally surrounded us and watched us for probably 15 minutes.  I thought I’d take my camera later that evening to get some photos of the same scenario, but apparently they had better places to be than on the beach.  I was actually impressed Jon flagged down 3 seagulls that were flying above us!  There was this little guy below enjoying his alone time on the beach though. DSC_2243 logo DSC_2253 logo DSC_2268 logo

In the evening little crabs (not hermit crabs) will scuttle from hole to hole.   Unfortunately I wasn’t fast enough to capture a photo of one, so just imagine a little crab peaking out of this hole.

Little bird prints in the sand.

One of the seagulls Jon flagged down.  I just love the setting sun’s orange light. DSC_2289 logo DSC_2292 logoDSC_2303 logo DSC_2304 logo DSC_2306 logo DSC_2346 logo

The sun’s orange and pink glow is beautiful in the sand!  DSC_2348 logo DSC_2349 logo DSC_2363 logo DSC_2368 logo
