Galveston Cemetery: Tombs

Since I was a child, I have wanted to stop at this lovely cemetery. I’d beg my parents to stop there every time we made the trek down from Humble to the seawall. Well, the universe finally decided to stop denying me the very reasonable request to investigate this place!

I like how the palm trees are swaying in the breeze!

The cemetery is right off Broadway smack in the middle of a neighborhood.

Creepy Carousel of Galveston, Texas

I make it no secret that I find carousels to be hellishly creepy. So I put my kid on this ride to toughen him up a bit. I think it’s good to introduce young children to the dark arts as soon as they can understand what the words “horror” and “bad mommy” truly mean in context.

For some odd reason, this ride did not terrify my child, though. I was thoroughly spooked, but he was happy as a clam. Instead, his blood ran cold on a teacup ride. I guess spinning around a giant teapot frozen in mid-attack is unsettling to a kid. Go figure!
