Balinese Room…Gone

Friday, February 27, 2009

I haven’t seen any photo of the Balinese Room since Hurricane Ike until I came across this photo link on Rule, Brittaniea.  Those of you who attended last year’s Sandblast Rally may remember the dinner party held there, and certainly many more people have visited this famed Galveston national landmark through the years. Now, as shown in this stunning photo (by: Karen) the Balinese Room is gone forever.  The Sandblast Rally has also been renamed Mudblast Rally and relocated to New Ulm, Texas, indefinitely.–Lorenzo

    The Balinese Room was fun and I’m sorry that it is now gone. A historic site lost, but frankly while we were there I thought “this place could fall into the gulf at any moment.”

    Bummer indeed! I hated to see a landmark like that go.
