So What if It Smells like Dead Fish and the Sand is Brownish?

I don't have all that much to say except I spent an entire weekend without writing a paper or doing a project, and I'm incredibly happy about that. I didn't even take pictures of silly signs. But I did go to Galveston.

I know no one calls Galveston "beautiful." It doesn't have the bluest water or the pretty kind of sand. But when I close my eyes the waves sound just exactly the same.

And also, the mystery of starting with pee was solved in the comments of the last post. The martial arts place actually aksed the students to start with SPEED, but they made the mistake of starting with dry erase.

Have a good week everyone!

I'm pretty much land locked where I am, so I would appreciate living nearer a body of water. :)

Tracy said...

I think Galveston is beautiful...it doesn't have any snow, thats beauty in my eyes right now ;)
Looks like you all enjoyed a wonderful day.

Yeah Marlene, I think I remember you saying that. Houston may be crowded and full of traffic and harbor roaches and stuff, but it's very close to all kinds of water!

We did Tracy, thanks! It is sort of beautiful in a smelling like dead fish kind of way. :-)

Would love to visit Galveston!! And you are so lucky you are close to water!

hahahah SPEED!!! That explains it! We have a place in South Australia called Pichi Richi Pass (aboriginal name). Every year someone scratches off the first letter of each word. Think about it!!!!!

The dead fish smell might rule out the relaxing attributes from crashing waves for me. You got some nice shots.

SJ said...

I am glad that The Mystery of Starting Pee is solved. Had many a sleepless night trying to figure it out.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Reds - I am! If you do come to Galveston, I'll meet you there! Can you bring the chocolate muffins? :-)

Arizaphale - Itchy itchy pass? Like itchy, scratchy?

Nicki - I guess you could go to the more populated parts of the beach and smell sunscreen instead! And thanks!!! :-) :-) :-)

SJ - Glad you'll be able to rest easy now!

one of the things i love most about living on long island is having beautiful oceans pretty much any which way i turn...

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Cid - You mean the candy place?!?!?!? Don't worry - we went there!

Slyde - It makes up for a lot, doesn't it?

A bad day on a so-so beach is still better than ANY day in the urban jungle.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...
