Photos: Murdock's Pier, Galveston, Texas

Murdock's was originally a bathhouse on a pier extending into the Gulf of Mexico from the Seawall. It was a gift shop when we visited in 2004.

guess it's not so much anymore. :/

is it me, or are the storms more frequent and more violent lately?

I find Galveston fascinating because it takes a licking from these hurricanes but rebuilds and opens its doors to visitors. In the Strand historic district, there are plaques on buildings that survived the 1900 hurricane.

In long-term trends, we are in a busy hurricane period just like the 1870s and 1950s. I think the increased intensity is a mix of more population in affected areas and higher water temperatures ("global warming" is a dirty word to Vogon).
