Galveston's Giant Seafood

The Giant Shrimp is still standing tall and pretty! We ate at Nick's, the restaurant where it stands, and the food was very good. Plus, we got an ocean view while we ate.

Galveston has so many unusual sights. It was a joy for me just going down the streets and taking pictures. I found statues of a giant shrimp, a metal fish and a whale's tail near the Blue Crab.
