Monday, Memorial Day, we went to the beach in nearby Galveston, TX with Ginger, her daughter Aaryn and son-in-law Ryan.  Beautiful sunny day with warm water to get wet in.  First time we've wet ourselves in U.S. Gulf Coast waters.  We are all getting a bit of color from the sun, some of it the reddish, painful variety.     

What?...me get in the water?!

Come on, I want to get back in the water!

A book at the beach. What could be better!

After the beach, we stopped in for cook-out dinner and visit with friends of Ginger and family.  We also played with their ducks.  Thelma and Phil live in the low marsh lands between Galveston and Houston.  The storm surge from Hurricane Ike in 2008 nearly flooded their house.  Water was up to their front door which is about eight feet off the ground!

Hungry ducks!

"That tickles!"

Somewhere out there is a 'gator.
