Cruising the sand dunes

Tigger & I found the sand dunes park while exploring Galveston today. I was nervous driving on the sand at first but soon realized it was really hard packed and I wouldn’t sink in and get stuck. I would love to camp here but it says no overnight camping.

We drove around the city and did some more sight-seeing. There are some really nice homes here…

We checked out “The Strand”. It’s the cool downtown historic district with lots of neat stores and places to eat.

I stopped at the local pawn shop and bought some DVDs (South Park 5th season & Golden Girls 1st season) and a Grundig shortwave radio. I love pawn shops. I can usually find something that’s priced low (compared to eBay) and can be bargained down further. Also, it’s a great place to buy used DVDs on the cheap. You can even bargain the price of these down too! Each boxed set was marked at $14.99. I offered $5 each and ended up paying $8 each. Not bad !!!

  1. Nice beach. Reminds me of FL too where you could drive on the beach, do you remember that? Nice homes there. It looks so warm too. Tigger likes it. Did you have any seafood for lunch?

  5. Believe it or not, one of the best medical schools in the country is located there - UTMB. If I had thought about it sooner I would have hooked you up with a friend of mine that teaches there. Duh, me!
