Summertime, and the livin' is easy
THE OLD SOUTH
Sometimes Galveston is like a city of the deep Old South. Sometimes it is like New Orleans.
The one thing it seems unlike is the rest of Texas. Perhaps that is why some Galveston Islanders like to say "Galveston near Texas" rather than "Galveston, Texas".
I am beginning to think that the entire Gulf Coast of the USA has more in common with each other than the states in which they are located.
