Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula, A Contrast by the Sea

Galveston is chock full of historical sites:
 The Moody Mansion, guided tours only and no pictures inside...

This is what it would look like 
if you could take pictures inside the Moody Mansion...

Survivors of Isaac's Storm in Galveston's East End Historical District.

 Bishop's Palace on Broadway, see at your own pace 
and please feel free to take pictures, inside or out.

Another survivor of the Hurricane of 1900.

Col Bubbies Army/Navy Surplus...going out of business since 1959!
A Landmark of the Strand.

The Strand is the gateway to the western Caribbean cruise ships

And then there is the Bolivar, laid back and low key

 The Ferry, free taxi to the Bolivar...

first stop

Fort Travis Park...

... protecting the ports of Galveston and Houston since the 19th century.

Inside the bunker is strictly off limits!

Final stop...
Steve's Landing for 
fresh seafood at a fraction of the main island's price...

 ...and marvelous sunsets at no extra cost!

Come back and see us soon!

And if so inclined you can leave your money here:

Galveston's a nice place to visit!
