Giving Thanks

We had a great time at Las Brisas for a week over the Thanksgiving holiday. While we did the usual beach house maintenance of painting this and fixing that, we also had sufficient time for some R & R. One of my best moments was sitting on the main deck listening to my teenage daughters giggle and laugh with each other below in a new hammock. It was a wonderful time. Here is the week in images:

If you haven’t made it to La King’s Confectionary on the Strand – it’s a must. They are up for several “Best of Galveston” awards. It’s an old fashioned ice cream parlor with every imaginable candy and coffee drink. Something for everyone!

We also spent a nice amount of time on the Bayside this week. My husband rode from the beach house to the marshes every day. Saw some amazing birds. I biked over with him a few times and the last morning there we took the youngest who wanted to take some photos of the birds.

And of course there was plenty of time for just strolling on the beach.

As always, the we enjoyed every minute there and it’s never long enough!
