Beach Clean Up Fun Family Day

We had the amazing opportunity to help clean up the Galveston beaches! A bonus was a sea turtle release! We love Galveston Island and are proud members of the Houston Zoo. We got to spend a day as a family helping the sea life of our area with cleaner beaches. Of course, we stopped by some of our favorite eateries and could not pass up a quick dip in the Gulf of Mexico.

Beach Clean Up Fun Family Day

Hello, wonderful readers, and welcome back to Suitcase Princess! I’m Shanna, and if you’re new here, I’m thrilled to have you join our homeschooling journey. We’re a family of four who believe in the magic of taking our kids out and about to explore the world around us. Today, I want to share an exciting family trip we recently had to Galveston Beach, where we combined the joy of beach fun with an important conservation initiative.

Unlocking Value in Family Adventures:

Our aim here at Suitcase Princess is to inspire you to embark on family adventures that are not only enjoyable but also meaningful. We’re all about getting out of the house, making memories, and discovering the hidden gems in our local areas. By sharing our experiences, we hope to help you find greater value in your excursions and have a lot more fun along the way – all while minimizing stress.


Galveston Beach Cleanup: A Blend of Fun and Purpose:

Before we dive into the details of our Galveston Beach adventure, I want to stress the importance of combining enjoyment with meaningful actions. One of our recent trips was particularly special – a beach cleanup organized by the Houston Zoo and partnered with Splash. This event aligned perfectly with our youngest family member’s passion for conservation. We were excited to be part of a collective effort to make a positive impact on our environment.


Embracing Adventure and Conservation:

Our adventure began with an early morning drive to Galveston Beach. The Houston Zoo had organized a beach cleanup event with a focus on conservation. Our youngest family member’s dedication to protecting the environment made this opportunity even more special for us. We were so lucky to witness the release of a rehabilitated loggerhead sea turtle back into the wild.

Exploring the Beach and Giving Back:

As we arrived at Stewart Beach, we were prepared for a fulfilling day of beach cleanup. While our expectations were high, we were pleasantly surprised to find minimal trash on the beach. However, we took the opportunity to pick up litter, focusing on the little things like water bottle lids that are often overlooked. By actively participating in this cleanup, we not only contributed to the environment but also instilled important values in our children.


Culinary Delights at The Spot:

After our beach cleanup, we continued our adventure with a delicious culinary experience at The Spot. This local gem in Galveston offers a delightful menu that caters to all tastes. With their unique flavored waffle fries and mouthwatering burgers, The Spot delivered a perfect blend of taste and quality, leaving us craving for more. This dining experience added an extra layer of enjoyment to our day.


The Power of Staying Informed:

One valuable lesson we’ve learned is the importance of staying informed about local events and offerings. By following the social media pages of your favorite destinations, you can discover remarkable opportunities and events that you might otherwise miss. Galveston’s Dickens on the Strand and sandcastle-building competitions are just a few examples of the incredible experiences waiting to be uncovered.

Our Galveston Beach adventure was a perfect blend of fun, family bonding, and conservation efforts. By actively participating in a beach cleanup and witnessing the release of a rehabilitated sea turtle, we created unforgettable memories while making a positive impact on the environment. Remember, every adventure can be enriched with purpose, and by following the social media pages of your desired destinations, you’ll unlock a world of unique experiences.
