A few photos from Bolivar Peninsula

This is a still-quite-damaged home on the harbor side, just before Rollover Pass:

It has some warning signs posted, including "claim pending". This is the side that faced the wrath of Ike, obviously. Despite the condition of this one, and more signs of devastation -- dunes several hundred yards inland and spread evenly across the coastal prairie, some wrecked and rusted autos -- the peninsula is looking good, with lots of new construction, many RV parks full, lots of activity.

While I waited for the ferry (less than five minutes), a gaggle of gulls dropped by to squawk and beg for a handout.

A very large container ship passes in front of our ferry.

And on past, on its way out to the Gulf of Mexico.
