For the first time in a week, I went for a walk around Jamaica Beach. I know Liberty liked it, as she was ready to go this morning. As a refresher, Liberty is our now 7-month-old German Shepherd. As soon as I slipped on my tennis shoes, she knew it was time.

I’m glad that I had the forethought to spray myself down with mosquito repellent. I don’t know if they’re bad where you live, but here on the west end of Galveston, they’re terrible. If you’re planning on coming to the island, I suggest carrying repellent.
