Meet Bertha. She is our GPS's. I have no idea how we would have made it this far without her! She brought us to a Ferry, so
we took it to Galveston Island. We tried to take pictures of the dolphins playing, but only managed to capture this one. Can you see it...top left hand corner?
We pulled into Galveston State Park for the night. We are right on the beach...lovely! This is the most expensive camp site we have stayed at thus far. $35.00 a night! We are both exhausted from the 3 hours of driving today, so we decided to suck it up and pay. :)
We took a walk on the beach, the tide was going out, so there were thousands of little hermit crabs, and holes acting like geysers. I am assuming the holes were inhabited by clams. We took a lot of pictures, which will be uploaded to my facebook page as soon as we can get a decent bandwidth. I'm also guessing these crabs and clams make a tasty meal for the hundreds of birds walking along the beach.
We climbed over some low sand dunes to get onto the beach...THEN we saw this sign. lol
I'm not sure where we plan to get to tomorrow, but tonight I will sleep like a baby listening to the waves and wind.
