This morning, it was in the mid 30's and cloudy. The clouds cleared this afternoon, so I stopped on the seawall before a stop at the grocery store.
Traffic was fairly light, and almost no cars were parked along the seawall, which is something you only see at sunrise during tourist season. It's times like this when the charm of Galveston is felt.
From my dealings with the locals, my work clothes signify I'm either one of them, or accepted as a peer. I find that an honor. Galveston is a major port and the gateway to the Houston ship channel. While tourism is special, hard working folks make it happen and many don't find tourists to be their favorite people.
Here's some photos. It was peaceful just standing, watching and the viewing the ships in anchorage; far out on the horizon; now clear and without the summer haze.
