In 2008 Hurricane Ike covered most of Galveston Island in a tidal surge. The damaging winds and waves uprooted many of the city’s trees. Where many saw dead trees and waste, a group of home owners saw a chance to morph symbols of destruction to signs of rejuvenation.

Artists breathed new life into something Mother Nature attempted to destroy. Whimsical tree sculptures have replaced the majestic Oaks that once lined many neighbor streets.

I enjoyed a self guided walking tour on a beautiful and windy day. The houses were also quite beautiful. Reminded me of a walk through New Orlean’s garden district.
