When you want candy or ice cream this is the best stop in the heart of The Strand district on Galveston Island. La King’s will cure your sweet tooth! It has been around many years and survived a few hurricanes along the way. Here are a few photos. Oh, yum! For more information visit their website http://www.lakingsconfectionery.com/

This Photo was taken in Galveston Island Texas June 21, 2014. Our beaches have been under attack by Sargassum seaweed in epics

proportions never before seen in 160 years of record keeping.  This seaweed here is three feet thick. In some places it is twelve feet deep.

The environment is out of balance.

Pleasure pier http://www.pleasurepier.com/ is built on the old Flagship Hotel pier in Galveston, Texas. This pier rivals Navy Pier in Chicago, or the Santa Monica Pier. Right on the Pier is the famous Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, if you are hungry! http://www.bubbagump.com/ There are snack shops, games, high and low thrill rides, and live music. Here are few photos from the pier. I hope you enjoy and find time to visit!

This photo was taken near Galveston, Texas, by another photographer, in one of the musicians yards that I have played with in the past. I learned the mother had four eggs, but only two chicks made it. Killdeers are cool because they run fast like roadrunners and they are pretty.

They macaws are speaking! Look at their eyes. They are saying,”Can you believe all these humans walking by gawking at us and taking photos?”

I took this photo at Moody Gardens Rain Forest Pyramid in Galveston, Texas.

Cotton Top Tamarins are small, quick, and extremely hard to photograph. You need patience with these little monkeys.  If you don’t believe me, give it a shot. These photos were taken at Moody Gardens. http://www.moodygardens.com/
