a couple weekends ago i went to galveston, tx with some friends. since moving to dallas and even before i got to the lone star state people told me how terrible the texas beaches were. and, i am here to tell you that i didnt think it was that bad. in fact i am kicking myself because this little treasure has been only 4-5 hours away from me for the past 3 years. i cant wait to go back, hopefully very soon! there is nothing better in the summertime than sinking my toes in the sand with a beach read, listening to the embers, and catching a few good waves on a boogie board.
