My sister, my friend and I are trying to make it a yearly thing to go down to Galveston to the beach every year. So all three of us and all the kids load up and go down. The kids love it and we love it despite that even with sunscreen most of us always get burned.
We had a ton of fun and it actually wasn’t too terribly hot.
And despite the fun we had we were really hoping that we would not see any of the tar balls that they have started to find on our Texas Coast, of course the ones that they say could or could not be from the BP spill, but come on they were not there last year and they are this year, so to me it is obvious they are most likely from the spill. We actually found quite a few small pieces but could not see a difference in the water.
