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 T-Mobile customer.
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 releases.  :(
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.
