To celebrate my dad's milestone birthday, we got a waterfront house for the weekend so he can do what he enjoys most... fishing. But with what would eventually become Hurricane Barry approaching, I was close to canceling the trip. Can't really fish with a storm barreling in. But on the final day to cancel (without losing tons of money), we decided to keep the reservation. And it paid off. It didn't even rain in Galveston except for a few spotty light sprinkles. My dad thoroughly enjoyed fishing and so did the kids (especially Andrew).
