On July 18th, 2013, My daughter Gail and I took a vacation to the Gulf of Mexico. We stayed in Kemah Texas, a resort town south of Houston. Susan and I have spent several winters here when we had the Motorhomes. For the first time in 47 years, we took separate vacations. She went to Vegas with her best friend Sydney, and I did this. We had a great time, went to Galveston, the Kemah Boardwalk, to Malls for shopping and so on. It was a 2400 mile roundtrip, passing through Arkansas, Texas, Houston and Dallas, Oklahoma and back home. Here are some pics I took. Click on images to enlarge.

Prior to coming here, she had only seen the ocean from a plane when flying to Rome.
I think she liked it!
