Day 14 of 16 (Page 1 of 2)
We started this day in Galveston, Texas. It was
pouring down rain, not a good day for the beach. So we all slept late.
Mitch wanted to find Starbucks, so he could load some pictures. Once we
got there, he found out he couldn't do what he wanted to do without becoming a
So we headed over to Moody Gardens, to do the pyramids.
We started at the Aquarium, then to the Discovery Pyramid, the movie ride, the
IMAX 3D Ocean Wonderful, then we finished with the Rain Forest Pyramid.
The last one isn't as nice as it use to be, it use to be full of butterflies,
but for some reason they had a sign up that they were not doing butterfly
By the time we finished up at the Pyramids, it has stopped
raining, so we headed to The Strand, to do some shopping. We went to the
old fashion ice cream shop to start and Heather got a scoop of chocolate chip
cookie dough ice cream and we got some candy. Bought some stuff for our
neighbors that are watching Oreo for us.
Then it was to the beach, for some pictures of Angelisa on
the beach. After the beach we headed to the Galveston Ferry for a round trip
ride. Heather enjoyed the ferry, saw some dolphins. We rode over on the top
deck and back standing at the front by the ramp. Heather got a little wet when
we hit some waves.
Then we went to dinner at a restaurant way out on Galveston
Island, The Waterman. This is a place we found while we were living here
3 years ago. Thankfully it was still there, just as we had remembered.
In all, Galveston still looks the same. The city has
added a convention center, Home Depot, Target and a couple small hotels plus
it lost a few things too, but it really looks just
like we left here yesterday and not 3 years ago.
