Bark, barque, whatever. I think she stayed at the dock and is still there. She did sustain some damage but it was relatively minor to my understanding. We were in Galveston in May visiting friends, and ate at the dockside restaurant next to the Elissa. What a thing to look at for the duration of an evening meal! Unfortunately, things in Galveston are not too good. There is New Orleans-style devastation there, even though it has not gotten the news coverage. They put on their Dickens-on-the-Strand celebration, a brave effort, to say the least.
