Here is another shot from last weekends excursion down to Galveston, Texas. This is the dedication to the Galveston Sea Wall with the remains of a souvenir shop destroyed by Hurricane Ike in the background. You've seen the souvenir shop in a couple of my posts before but since I think the image is such a powerful reminder of the damage caused by Hurricane Ike I keep coming back to it!
