As far back as my memories go there was Galveston. The family went there often. We even went there one time when we shouldn’t have and got caught in a hurricane.
Even back in the early days there was always a variety of things to do. We used to go to Murdoch’s to swim because they had a bath house.
There was an arcade on Seawall Blvd. which my sister and I always wanted to visit. That worked for my mom and dad because there were also slot machines they could play.
Within walking distance, behind the Buccaneer Hotel was a big, scary roller coaster that I rode once…and only once. That is another story, as is the hurricane. I’ll tell them in later posts.
Even after I was married and moved from Dallas back to Houston, our place to go when we wanted to get away for awhile was always Galveston.
Although we live at Lake Tahoe now Galveston is still a special place to me and always will be. Quite often I go online and look at their live webcams.
