For true beach lovers, the magic of the ocean never ends. In this little book about the Galveston beach, Heidi Straube has captured the peacefulness, fragile beauty, and silent gracefulness of children and adults at the beach. The stillness of her photos, many shot in the fog, remind us of the places we can go to within, no matter what our outside circumstances.
Galveston and its beaches were severely damaged during Hurricane Ike in September of 2008. Ms. Straube has captured the beauty and innocence that has always been a part of Galveston's beaches and its visitors, and provides hope for the future.
"Aaaaah"....Heidi's photographer group sighed upon first seeing her pictures. Experience the memories and magic yourself in this lovely tribute to Galveston.
