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.

Mrs. Crosby Goes to Galveston - Day 1

Very excited to be heading to sunny climes with Mrs.  Crosby.  As you may know, she is a purveyor of fine fibers and I was thrilled to be able to bring her along to Galveston, Texas and share some of favorite spots in this beautiful and historic Texas city.

Our lodging is at the Sally Trueheart Williams home on Broadway in the East End Historic District.   I would highly recommend it.  It was built in 1928 and it built in a Spanish Revival style.  The renovations to the interior are very comfortable while maintaining the integrity of this home.

Never-Tangle Wool and Self-Knitting Needles

On a scale of 1 to 10 of Harry Potter fandom, this muggle probably ranks around the mid point. I enjoy the movies, but haven't read the books (I know, I know ... ). I recently traveled to Orlando with the fam to vacay at the home of everyone's favorite mouse. Once there, my Potter-fanatic sister convinced her husband and I to spend a day at Harry Potter world. And, I must say, it was pretty Potter-riffic.
