This summer the family spent some time down at the beach in Galveston Texas. We had a great time relaxing and spending time at the beach. One morning I woke up early to make some photographs before the sun got to high and captured this photograph of the beach early in the morning. While peaceful it was not empty. Throngs of fisherman had already taken to the water and they were busy trying to get their daily catch in before the beach goers showed up to crowd them out. It is amazing that just a few short years ago in 2008 this beach was devastated by Hurricane Ike wiping out most of the island. It is once again a beautiful place and great for some family fun.
