Day 29: Island Hopping (Beth)

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.)

This is actually a shipwreck we passed.

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.
