"cool trees in galveston"

I went to pick my wife up from work in Galveston a couple days ago. I took Sealy, a back street off the seawall to look at old houses and to explore shopping and dining spots. There was a tree sculpted with wild native birds that was extremely well done and lacquered up. Really cool to me and even cooler to stumble upon! I did some research and seems this has been done to a lot of trees that were killed by seawater during hurricane Ike. Here's the link to check out some more of this and other ongoing projects to preserve some of Galveston's oldest trees.


Here's a link about a whaling ship being restored by Galveston timbers.
