    It was a cold and damp day after Christmas - no day for the beach. But we knew out daughters would each be at a beach in Oregon that week, so while making a short visit to Galveston, we had to at least get out of the car and put our feet in the sand for a few minutes.

    Along the beachfront, we could still see considerable damage from Hurricane Ike, which had struck the are 14 months before.
