Boliver Island

Who can resist a weekend at a “beach cabin”?  Torres was nice and daring enough to invite 11 of us to her parent’s “beach cabin” on Boliver Island.  Boliver is about 2 hours from Houston and a ferry ride away from Galveston.  Boliver was hit pretty hard by hurricane Ike in 2008 and many houses were completely destroyed but luckily the Torres “beach cabin” remained standing. 

When we arrived to the cabin we were greeted by some very “friendly” guests…mosquitos!!!  If someone would have had a video of me, Brian and Mariam getting out of the car they would have won a funniest video contest.  Within 30 seconds of getting out of the car we were swarmed by hundreds of mosquitos which we proceeded to swat at while digging for Off in our bags .  July has been a very rainy month and perfect for the little buggers.  Luckily they did not follow us to the beach.  We had a constant smell of off and sun block…great mixture!

Once everyone got there we headed to the beach for some sun, swimming and games.  We played bocce, ladders, tossed the football then decided to play “touch” football.  Ofcourse the idea of touch football came after several glasses of Jerry Lewis’s, beers, white wine and vodka.  So we picked teams and let the fun rip.  Needless to say we ended up with: a bruised tailbone, bit tongue, one less toenail, several strawberries included 2 on a face.  We learned to never play “touch football” without a first aid kit around…for the adults!
