Mrs. Crosby Goes to Galveston - Day 3 The Strand

No trip to Galveston would be complete without a trip to the Strand Historic District.   The Strand was originally Avenue B which ran parallel to Galveston Bay.  It was a merchant area near the wharf and the merchant there thought calling it "the Strand" gave it a more upscale sound.  Now the Strand encompasses many blocks downtown and is a shopping and entertainment district.

Here Mrs. Crosby and I enjoy a delightful repast from the Rooftop Bar of the Historic Tremont House.  We just loved watching the cruise ships leave for parts unknown.
