Twenty-two members in eleven cars joined us for our Texas History Weekend. On Saturday we departed Fort Worth and drove to Galveston on a less-traveled route to try to avoid the I-45 tractor-trailers. However, we were not able to totally avoid the famous Houston traffic. Upon arrival at Galveston, we had lunch at the elegant Hotel Galvez. After lunch, we took a boat tour of the harbor side of the island. Back ashore, we checked in at the very nice Courtyard on famous Seawall Blvd. Our dinner and social was in a private room at Gaido's Seafood Restaurant, locally owned and operated by the same family since 1911. On Sunday, we drove to La Porte to visit the San Jacinto Memorial and took an elevator ride to the observation deck. We met up with some Houston Section board members who welcomed us into their area. We capped the weekend with a tour of the 100-year-old Battleship Texas, the last survivor of the Dreadnought era. After an impromptu group lunch at the Monument Inn, we drove home on our own.
