Hunting for Treasure

Hunting for Treasue
Galveston Island, Texas

These guys were grazing near a road called 8 Mile on Galveston Island, Texas. Nearby is a group of trees I will tell you about in a minute. On family trips we used to go fishing a lot at 8 mile or what others might call Sportsmans road, which is off of 8 mile. At the end of Sportsmans road there's a nice place to wade out to some salt grass areas to fish. Caught my first Red Fish there and Speckled Trout but not my first Flounder. Thats another story involving a sunburn, a floatie raft, and a toy fishing real. Back to the group of trees. Everytime we drove by these tree's I've always wandered if that's wear Jean Laffite buried his treasure. It just might have been. Ever been treasure hunting?
