The ride from Corpus Christi to Galveston was a refreshing change of scenery! The desert has a beauty all its own, but we had had a steady diet of it and enjoyed the change. From Corpus Christi, we jumped onto a road that served as intermediary between several islands off the coast of Texas. Green palm trees, grass, ocean view, pelicans, houses on stilts- it was gorgeous. We rode across Mustang Island and had to take a ferry to cross over to the next island on the route. It only lasted a few minutes, but we caught a glimpse of a couple dolphins swimming lazily out in the water. After a while we had to take yet another ferry and eventually (hours later) we ended up in Galveston. (You would think there’d be more to say after a full day of riding, but it was fairly uneventful in a nice way.)
It took us a while to find a place to stay for the night, but we did eventually get settled in somewhere and then ran out for a late dinner.
