My heart is warm with the friends I make,

And better friends I'll not be knowing,

Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,

No matter where it's going.

Gray is certainly the most frequently chosen color on Southeast Alaska’s pallet. I was awestruck on this day in Dry Bay by the vicissitudes of sunlit gray passing from sand to sea to sky.

Out of a misty dream

Our path emerges for a while, then closes

Within a dream.

This is Joyce Murdoch, a 2 year old female Domestic Shorthair mix.

 

I volunteered at PAWS Atlanta. I took photos of some of the dogs and cats that need homes. I thought I'd also remind people you can find great pets at shelters and in rescue groups. And of course, help control the pet population, please spay and neuter your pets!!

That sweet winter light. After a quick crew change, daily St. Paul-Edmonton freight 293 leaves CP's intermodal facility at Shepard and heads for the Red Deer subdivision and points North. Behind the power in shiny red paint are brand new GP20C's 2234 and 2237.

These impressive car-sized erratics were bare just weeks before but long, sunny Alaskan summer days induce incredibly productive algae blooms, the staff of life in marine waters.

What did it feel like

to be one at a time --

 

to be caught in a mind

in the body you'd found

 

in yourself alone --

in each other one?

Ten below near Halibut Point…Ice skating anyone? This brackish pond near the ocean’s edge was flash frozen by the icy fall winds blowing off Glacier Bay’s vast ice fields. It was so cold on this day that just stopping to take this picture chilled me to the bone.

Murdoch's Bathhouse is one of Galveston's most historic locations. Originally built in the late 1800's, the wood structure was constructed directly on the sand. Without the protection of a Seawall , the 1900 storm destroyed the bathhouse. Although the structure was rebuilt in 1901, the storms of 1909 and 1915 were so violent, that reconstruction was required after each.

 

Bathhouses such as Murdoch's, which were located on the shore, rented bathing suits and provided showers for the Island visitors. When Murdoch's reopened in 1910, it had 542 rooms, 251 for women and 291 for men. The cost at the time to rent the bathroom services were .25c.

 

In 1910, Mr. William J. Guyette Sr. opened Guyette Gift Shop inside Murdoch's. He knew that with so many visitors coming to Galveston Island, a shop that offered these visitors souvenirs, shells and trinkets, would be a great idea.

 

That same year, Gaido's Seafood restaurant was also opened inside Murdoch's Bathhouse. Both establishments are still thriving today and are considered Galveston institutions.

 

Mr. Guyette's son, William J. Guyette Jr. , took over operations of the gift shop after serving five years in the U.S. Army during World War II. With Mr. Guyette Sr. living just across the street at the Moody House, the 2nd generation would continue the daily operations of Guyette Gift Shop.

 

In 1961, Hurricane Carla destroyed the bath house yet again. Reconstruction this time replaced the grander bathhouse with the two oblong wood structures, built several steps above the seawall and carried out over the Gulf of Mexico on wood pilings.

 

In 1974, Mr. William J. Guyette Jr.'s son-in-law, James W. Little, took over operations of Guyette Gift Shops. Although Mr. Guyette still remained active in the shops, Mr. James Little, the 3rd generation, had now begun to take charge.

 

In 1983, Hurricane Alicia hit Galveston Island. This storm required the pier to have minor repairs.

 

In 2005, the family connected the existing piers with a breezeway and porch overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Since the State of Texas, will not allow anymore piers to be built, it stands on some of the original piling that once held Murdoch's Bathhouse.

 

In 2008, Hurricane Ike destroyed Murdochs, and in 2009, miraculously, a brand new, sparkling Murdochs returned in its place.

I don't eat I just devour, everyone in every hour

All is me, is all I need and that's all that I care

Propelled through all this madness, by your beauty and my

sadness

I'll never change or rearrange, till I've finished what I've

started.

 

And life leads me here

It shows me, I have never really loved no one but me...
