It's official. This February, we're going to Galveston, Texas, for a month. Booked plane. Booked condo on the beach. Then someone said, "You're going where? Galveston?" 

I know nothing of Galveston Island, but as I look forward to about 4 months before flowers sprout, and it hit 10 degrees this last week here in Spokane, those warm temps in Galveston look pretty good. 

The condo faces a boardwalk along a less populated section of the ocean. We'll take walks along Seawall Boulevard. Cafes and restaurants await nearby. A little pier juts out with views of birds and boats, a perfect place for an afternoon coffee, or to watch the sun set, or a Wild Blue Heron take flight.

Because of family health issues, we haven't really been able to travel for two years. Maybe we forgot how? This trip to Galveston is to see if we still can stuff laptop, camera, and other necessaries into a suitcase to live simply for a month. 

If they have a library or used bookstore nearby, the condo is reasonably quiet, and we have access to internet (and tv for the sports fan), I think we'll be just fine. 

And more than ready for our next travel adventure.
