I went down to Galveston with camera in tow to take some pictures of Nina. The pictures were saved to an Imagestation file. I only "sorta" know what I'm looking at, I'm admittedly still on the learning curve. So if I've made any mistakes in the descriptions, please feel free to give me an education.
