It’s always an interesting experience to visit the historical town of Galveston on the Gulf of Mexico. With many of their homes on stilts, it’s just a constant reminder of how nature in the form of floods and hurricanes affects this place. Case in point, this crumbling stilt house we found in the middle of an open field. We are pretty sure that it’s current state is at least partially caused by the weather. It really does make us realize how powerful nature can be!
