Labor Day marks the unofficial end of Summer.
While Monday's weather was not the most ideal for beach-goers, gray skies did not stop visitors from making the best of Labor Day on Galveston Island.
According to the Galveston Island Visitors and Convention Bureau, it was a great summer on the island.
Summer tax collections were only 15 percent below the peak set in 2008, before Hurricane Ike and the economic downturn.
Tropical Storm Hermine brought rain, wind and plenty of gray skies, so most visitors were focused on the rainy weather whether than the meaning of why they had the day off.
Still, many called the holiday weekend -- as well as the summer -- a success.
