Bryson at Galveston Beach

Last month we caught up with Bryson getting ready to go to Galveston Beach. Byrson is the author of the famous tour guide book Bryson Picture Book of Fort Worth Water Gardens and so we asked him to pass on a few tips for the first time beachgoer.

Galveston Beach

Hello there! My name is Bryson and I will be showing you around Galveston Beach. But before going it is important to get a good breakfast. Once you start playing in all that sand you might just want to stay there all day.

Here we are at Galveston Beach. It is virtually deserted today as it is a little cold. You know Galveston attracts 5.4 million visitors a year so we are lucky that most of them are not at the beach today.

Sand and sea, sea and sand. Find yourself a spot away from the crowds, which should be easy to do today, and I will tell you a little about Galveston.

Much of Galveston's economy is centered in the tourism, health care, financial, and shipping industries. Shipping involves ships, as you can see. The Port of Galveston covers 850 acres of port facilities.

There is plenty to do at the beach. You can watch the birds hunt for food...

But if you really want to have fun, you'll grab your spade and follow me.

With your shovels and buckets you are ready to start building. Fill up your bucket with sand and turn it over.

Like magic you will have a sand castle. Make it as big as you want, there is plenty of building material. You can never use it all up. Building sand castles is very popular with more than 516 billion constructed every year around the world.

To finish up build yourself a moat to keep out the heathen hordes. Well, enjoy the beach, I have to go find my Mom and Dad before they get into mischief. And who knows what Grandpa is up to.

I caught up with my Mom and Dad, they were just taking pictures with the Gulf of Mexico as a backdrop along with Grandma and Grandpa. They never did build a sand castle.

  1. Nice pics, Rickety. Stumbled on your blog while looking for pictures of sand castles. I just learnt where Galveston beach is, too. I hope Bryson is keeping well.
