I took a week off to stay on the island (Galveston). It actually took a day to unwind and release from the everyday routine I'm used to. Living in Houston is very stimulating, but it can get overwhelming. The key is to know when to step away and recharge.
So the plan was to have no plan. What a relief!
By the third day I was drawn to the architecture on the island. You can get a great sense of history just by wandering around and looking at the buildings and homes that have been preserved and restored. I snapped some pictures
and drew in my sketchbook
I wanted to capture the timelessness of the place.
