Beach Sunflowers swaying in the wind on Galveston Island

For someone who has not been to Galveston Island in many years, I was expecting the place to be dingier, the beaches dirty and stinky like they used to be. The good news is the "Third Coast" is first class. Kudos to the volunteers and other crews that keep it clean. It inspired me to do my part taking out a couple of plastic bottles and cups left in the sand.
