Since the cruise left from Galveston bound for the Western Caribbean, I will start the week off in Galveston. We had a day to ourselves before the ship was set to sail and we took the opportunity to explore downtown Galveston.
This set of spires is from St. Mary Cathedral Basilica on corner of 21st and Church Streets. It was built in 1848 and in 1884, these towers were heightened to eighty feet to bring them into proportion with a central tower on the church and the crosses were added.
