Great Morning by the San Luis Pass bridge – as you can see not much traffic on the sand – look carefully on the bridge for the speedy rider.
30 years ago there was nothing on this end of Galveston Is. Now it is beach houses and Condos all but a few miles to the State Park.
There were not many sections with out condos, beach homes and resorts. All of them look in great condition, new paint and stuff. Wait a minute I know of a least 3 hurricanes to hit this area in the last 40 years and IKE wasn’t that long ago, and Galveston still holds the record for largest loss of life in the US from catastrophe for the Hurricane in 1900. Yes History does repeat it self. The difference now is that most of the people think they are in control of the weather either for bad or good. How’s that working out.
Yippe the warm showers of the state park
The state park of course looks nothing like when we camped here back in the early 80’s. The shower was really nice. This side of campground was full up with RVs, they do have a tent site on the bay side.
View of the Gulf from the showers - the sun warms up, out of the wind.
A very pleasant day. The church of Our Lady of the Sea was only 2 miles back with a Saturday Vigil Mass at 7:00pm. A Subway was a block away. Spent the afternoon at the subway labeling these pictures – as you know I was way behind in my updates.
At the Church the priest read the Letter from the Galveston Bishop regarding the Health Care mandate that has the US Government restricting religious freedoms that were one of main stays of founding of this country. By attacking the biggest kid on the block, all the other kids will knuckle under.
In 1938 German, all the Bishops were given a letter from the Pope to be read at all the masses – the letter condemned then current German government actions, and requested all people take actions to change the direction.
Of course many will say this not about religious freedom, it is about health care for women. They dismiss the health care for the unborn children and grandchildren in the womb.
History does repeat itself and with our God given Freedom of Will – He will let us get what we want – usually it doesn’t seem as nice when we are in the middle of it.
Mean while the lesson from this sea shore God has before us is – After all the storms some of it is still here and is beautiful and is changed.
