Photographer and artist Joey Quiroga explores the beauty of the upper Texas coast
The Galveston Island seawall is the longest continuous sidewalk in the United States, offering views of stunning sunrises and sunsets. Runners, walkers and bikers can enjoy 10 miles of the seawall along the Gulf of Mexico.
The seawall was built after the deadly 1900 Storm for protection from future storms. Construction began in September 1902, and the initial segment was completed on July 29, 1904.
From 1904 to 1963, the seawall was extended from 3.3 miles to more than 10 miles.
