A Galveston Wedding

Our daughter, Deanne, is being married on Saturday to Mike Key, a fellow ENT Surgeon in Little Rock. The wedding to taking place on a Carnival cruise ship prior to their departure on a honeymoon cruise. Deanne has been planning this wedding for weeks. While she was in Victoria for Christmas, she dressed up her nephew and niece (our grandchildren) in their "Ring Bearer" and "Flower Girl" formal wear to make sure it fit. The children are four and three, respectively, and the formal clothes made them look much more mature! Here are some samples:

A couple of weeks ago, I did an internet search, and chose to park the Bus at Bayou Shores RV Park in Galveston for the wedding. We left Victoria on Friday morning, and arrived in Galveston at about 3:00pm. We had not thought about the damage to Galveston from hurrican Ike last September, and were a little taken aback when we started to see the visible scenes of damage that is still very prevalent. The Bayou Shores RV Park is full of contractors, and it was also a muddy mess, thanks to a heavy rain on Christmas Eve. While it is not what we expected for $37 a night, it works well for our purpose. Here is a picture of the Bus parked:

After we got the Bus parked and hooked up, we drove around town to get our bearings. The cruise ship dock is near The Strand, so we got to see it again. The Strand is still there, but I would say that it is less than 50% of what it used to be. All over town, there is a lot of evidence of the storm. Here are some photos of the strand:

Tomorrow, the WEDDING!!!!
