Inspiration in Galveston Island

I can’t imagine how I managed to wind up in a land-locked state.  I like it here well enough, but every once in a while, I have to head for the coast.  I do not need white sand, surfers, or yachts, just waves, rocks and maybe a little sand, and of course sunrises…..I got my coffee and wandered out to the balcony just in time to catch this one:

So what do you do at the beach? I’m just content to get sand between my toes and let the waves wash my cares away….

BabySis & I chose to visit a submarine – the USS Cavalla (OK, we probably wouldn’t have chosen to go there if it weren’t for having Son & Brother-in-Law with us). Its really cool, see, the first sign you see let’s you know how original everything is:

Even the bathrooms and kitchens were fascinating to me – anyone living in a New York apartment should visit this submarine; its a study in efficiency. So tiny, it wasn’t easy to take good pics. I couldn’t resist a couple that I find inspiring, I’m fascinated with knobs, levers, and the like, surely I can find inspiration from this:

Lookie! They even have cables down here!!  (You know that’s going in my ideas box)

Speaking of cables, I must go knit a few more rows on Nettie’s Neck Warmer done in reversible cables – I’ll be back with photo’s.

    I grew up on the east coast near a beach. With gritty yellow sand. And I burned and got sun poisoning. Then I married. And we lived near the beach, then on the beach, then again near the beach (Navy wife). etc. LOTS of beach, sun, and sand! And I still got burned and sun poisoning.
    I now live on the edge of the desert. Nope, I don’t miss the beach. At all.

    Isn’t it great to see what the inside of a sub is like. Can you imagine living in such close space?! With all that water surrounding you?!

    Enjoy your vacation in the sun and squishy sand between your toes!

    I could imagine living in a sub if there weren’t 30 others living in there with me!
