This weekend I visited my family in Texas for a long weekend. (You can see my sister, brother and mom in the second picture.)

We went over to Galveston for the day on Saturday. It was very nice to be on a beach without four hundred thousand other people, even though the seaweed was out of control. (Look at that brown mass between the sand and the water in the first picture—that’s seaweed. Luckily, we later found a beach where the seaweed wasn’t so bad so that Wally could go into the water.)

Sometimes I really miss Texas…
