The babies love the island. They smile a lot here and they are in awe with the beauty of the ocean, and the dolphins. They absolutely adore seeing the dolphins. But it’s cold here now in the evenings and the dolphins are pretty much only visible if you take the ferry. They really are a beautiful sight and we need to take a ride on the ferry this weekend because we haven’t seen the dolphins in far too long.
But for the most part, my babies are easy to please. Even a little time at this statue brought smiles to their faces. This sculpture by David W. Moore was dedicated to the citizens of Galveston by the Galveston Foundation, Inc. in 1975. Apparently, it used to be a fountain. Now it is just a monument sitting on the Seawall where tourists (and locals) take daily photos. It is another sign of hope. This statue survived Ike as well. The area around it was pretty busted up and it’s amazing that it stood there amongst the rubble.
As you can see, the people of Galveston appreciate its beauty, and the entire area has been rebuilt around this fabulous statue to protect it and offer its guests a place to sit, enjoy, and relax by the sea. This is Galveston, and I’m glad my children appreciate and love its beauty as much as their Mommy and Daddy do!
