It’s a magic day in Galveston today. The weather is about as great as it can get, the water and sky are blue, the air crisp, the annual Harvest Moon sailboat regatta is under way—and riding the wind in another fashion—many thousands (maybe millions?) of monarch butterflies are fluttering up the coast. I have a hunch the golden croaker run has started, which also means it’s nearly flounder time. This is the stuff that makes living and working on the gulf coast a special pleasure. I hope you all get a chance to enjoy in your own special way what these days and nights have to offer.
(My thanks to my colleague Heidi Lutz, who took time at lunch to capture and share a few pics of the race and our favorite tall ship, the Elissa.)
