Happy 80th Birthday, Bob

By Linda Elissalde
SURPRISE! That is exactly what Robert Morgan’s birthday was – at least to Bob. Leave it to his sister Sherry to plan an event – and keep it a secret from her big brother. He expected a few friends to join him at his 80th birthday on July 19, 2021, but not a crowd. There were 21 friends waiting for him at Tiki Beach Bar and Grill. When he

Happy 223rd Birthday to Jane Long

*Jane Long, “Mother of Texas”,
Pioneer Woman brave and true.
Yes, Jane Long was a lady
Who did what she had to do!

Captain Bryan’s Fishing Report, 7-27-21

By Captain Bryan Brawner
We are still looking at challenging fishing conditions in Galveston East Bay due to the fresh water persisting in the bay with salinity content nil and water conditions bad on most days.

Living the Book of Proverbs – Lesson Two

Brenda Cannon HenleyBy Brenda Cannon Henley
Often having heard descriptions of the Book of Proverbs as a “road map of daily living,” “our GPS for life” and “practical wisdom for daily choices,” I have come to respect, revere, and rely on the words found in the 31 chapters. In fact, there is a chapter (some longer – some shorter) for every day of the month. I have further been surprised to find

Miss Bee’s Bolivar Buzz

Shannon WilliamsBy Shannon Williams
Crystal Beach has many things that make it, well, unlike so many other places. It starts with the ferry, what a way to arrive!! A little mini cruise complete with a water feature (just stand at the front of the boat), entertainment for the children (a few pieces of bread and stand at the back of the boat), the sound of the waves, the smell of the ocean, and

And They Lived Happily Ever After

Georgia's Sand BucketBy Georgia Osten
We went for a journey this past weekend to a beautiful Destination Wedding, the wedding of our niece. What a beautiful destination it was – Vail, Colorado!
