2009-01-22nd thru 25th - trip from Houston to Fort Myers
On Thursday January 22nd 2009 we started to pack up Carol's car for our trip back to Fort Myers .. Saturday we headed to Galveston Island to check out the post Hurricane IKE damage to the Galveston area .. after spending part of the day on Galveston Island we took the Ferry to
the Bolivar Peninsula and from there we headed to New Orleans ( French Quarters )
Hurricane IKE made landfall in the Galveston Bay area .. about 130 days later on Saturday January 24th we had an opportunity to take a photo tour of the area to see with our own eyes the recovery efforts to date .. after spending a couple of hours on the Island of Galveston we took the Ferry to Bolivar Peninsula.
There has been a lot of work done on Galveston Island and the recovery efforts are well underway .. many of the business have reopened and the rebuilding of the area is just starting to get underway .. was all but totally destroyed by Hurricane IKE .. as we drove thru the Peninsula we saw that the cleanup efforts were well underway but it will be a long time before the area will be getting back to the condition that existed before IKE came thru.
