The beach is my happy place. Jeff, on the other hand, would prefer the mountains. But he likes having a happy wife so, here we are.
We split the cost of a beach house with my brother and had a huge family reunion in Crystal Beach with my parents, my brother and his family, our daughter and her husband, and our son with his girlfriend.
The beach there is hard-packed, and they allow you to drive and park on it for the cost of a $10 annual pass. We parked the RV just on the water side of the dunes right by the beach house that we rented. It was super handy to have a bathroom, a refrigerator, a place to store all the beach chairs, and an awning right there on the beach.
We enjoyed playing in the water, sitting on the deck overlooking the beach, sitting on the beach, watching movies, doing puzzles, lots of talking and eating great food, a day-trip into Galveston, but most of all just being together.
Enjoy some of the MANY photos we took.
