In and around Broadway Avenue on Galveston's east end you will find some of the the stately mansions that made it through the 1900 hurricane.
Many of these homes are open to the public during the Historic Home Tour held in May.
Not far from Broadway Ave. running parallel to Galveston Bay is the five block area called The Strand, which is the business district made up of primarily Victorian aged buildings
set mainly along brick streets.
I especially liked this old building trimmed in green.
Couldn't resist going into this old soda shop and candy store where several times a day they have taffy pulling demonstrations.
They also have a colorful array of candy.
Very near The Strand is the port of Galveston where there are usually a couple of cruise ships parked.
and last but not least....trying to blend in, Tom and I did our best to dress like tourists.
It was a quick two days in Galveston, but we sure had a nice time.
