I just love to go thrifting. These wonderful treasures were just waiting for me to snag them yesterday! And among my "finds" was this fabulous antique book titled "The Great Galveston Disaster" which was published in 1900....the year of the devastating hurricane. Our family spent many a summer vacation on Bolivar Penisula just a ferry ride across the bay from Galveston. After hurricane Ike in 2008 nothing remains on Bolivar........so very sad.
