And last, but not least...

...Grandaughter #5, Clara!  Clara spent Friday and Saturday, probably the coldest weather we've had here, with us.  She chose dinner carefully and decided on McDonald's.

Saturdays breakfast of choice.  We've had more pancakes in the past 2 weeks than in the past 2 years.

On Friday I wouldn't pay the $6 to go into Seawolf Park just to find their painted turtle.  But Saturday I justified it because Clara could play on the toys.  It was a short stay though with the cold temperatures and strong winds.

Across from and sponsored by the Naval Museum is Zeke, created by  Brian "Visker" Mahoney and Hannah Claudia James.  Why is he decorated like a submarine?  

WWII submarine USS Cavalla (black),  and the USS Stewart (grey). The USS Cavella was built in 1943 and decommissioned for the final time in 1971.  The USS Stewart is one of only 3 destroyer escorts in the world.  Built in Houston and commissioned in 1943, it was decommissioned in 1947.  Seawolf Park is also home to the Galveston Naval Museum.

The concrete oil tanker SS Selma in the fog.  Built in 1919 in Mobile, AL it sunk 1 mile north of Galveston Island in 1922.

Wonder why this ship was being towed in?

Seawolf Park is located on Pelican Island.

We stopped to see a few turtles on our way back to the RV, picked up a movie at Redbox,  and selected Sunday breakfast from Home Cut Donuts.

Wags, located at the Galveston Humane Society, created by Katherine Zimmerman.

Temperatures in the 40's, winds over 20 mph and no sun = 🥶.  Hopefully Clara can come back next weekend to make her shell creation on the beach.

If Mom sees this, the marshmallows Clara brought to practice toothbrushing on came in handy.  Why marshmallows I asked?  Because they look like teeth, of course! 
Where are the Piepers now?  Siberia?  No. Pat says we're still in Galveston, TX.
