I had a tough time deciding on favorites. They were all beautiful. There was also a mermaid, an angel, and by the fire station there were a huge fire hydrant and dalmation.
The sculptures were all on private property, but none of the homeowners complained. Several came outside to find out who we were and where we were from. The man in the picture above was genuinely excited to see us. He told us the Greek column design was his wife's idea. It symbolizes work left unfinished, or something like that. I wish I'd videotaped him. He said, "This is awesome! I'm so happy to see you guys!" As we were leaving, someone told me he was the new mayor of Galveston. That explains why he was so giddy about seeing almost 40 cyclists touring the island. His city relies upon tourism, which has not been what it once was. There is still a lot of rebuilding to be done.
Those are some of our bikes on the ferry. Cyclists don't have to wait in line with the cars. Even with this many, we rode up to the front and walked on. The ferry is free and a lot of people ride just to site-see. There is a lot provided for anyone to park and walk on if they wish. We saw a few dolphins and pelicans, but the uncooperative beasts refused to pose for photos.
So you'll have to settle for one of me.
