Evening Along The Shore


galveston1
Ah, Galveston. I love this island. For those who haven’t been reading long, my history with the island is that I spent four years there while in college. The island is equal parts old money, spring break, summer vacation, and ratty hole-in-the-wall. It’s still a little bit of a place called home for me, though.

Chris and I spent a little bit of time down at the beach that we got engaged at. We think.. You see, when we got engaged there were more dunes and vegetation and a sign for riding horses on the beach. That was back in 2001. Since then Hurricane Ike came through and well, the scenery has changed.

I believe this is a snowy plover. I was hoping for piping plover but the eye patch threw me off and my guidebook suggests snowy plover instead.

Cndarians of some sort....
This pods of jelly are some kind of comb jelly I believe. I’m having flashbacks to invertebrate zoology right now and memorizing taxonomy.

Here’s your run-of-the-mill laughing gull….he wants some food.

I’m going to go with ring-billed gull for this one….flying on by.

I love the feathers on the wing tips of this brown pelican as it is flying by; very poetic and graceful.

But poetry and grace take the backseat when dinner calls!
