Default Galveston

We have been out on the Conquest twice from Galveston. The first time we did not take the ferry but we did the second time. We arrived a day early and spent the night before boarding on Galveston Island. Maybe this is why we did not have a long wait for the ferry, but we did enjoy the ferry ride a lot.

We went to a restaurant there that was right at the harbor. We set our time up to be there late afternoon and found a window seat and watched the cruise ships sail out. This was Willie G's and the food and service was great. We definately plan to go again if we ever make it back to Galveston.

We needed a couple of things from the drugstore the morning we sailed and, since we had brake problems when we arrived on Saturday evening, we decided to walk down at sunrise along the beach. This was a beautiful sight. It was only a few blocks to a Walgreen's and we just took our time to watch the sunrise. (We had made arrangements on Saturday evening to have our brakes repaired on the Sunday morning that we were to arrive back into Galveston and this worked out fine for us).
