Galveston, Texas

Saturday February 23…10:30pm

No problem with the tide this morning…water was still well away from Sherman. We got on the road right away and made it to Galveston about 10am. The Walmart here is right on the main drag which is called Seawall Blvd. There are signs saying there’s a city ordinance preventing you from
parking overnight in the Walmart parking lot, but we asked at the front desk and they directed us to an area we could park in. We think that now that this Walmart is a “24 hour supercenter”, they can’t enforce an overnight parking ban.

Took Whiskey for a long walk on the beachfront towards downtown, and then went for a bike ride after lunch to what’s called Moody Gardens. There’s an IMAX theatre there, and an aquarium and a water park and a few other touristy things. But we just looked around and didn’t spend any money.

Note what's parked in the parking lot. No shortage of money at...

Did some grocery shopping at the Walmart supercenter. Majority of items are sure a lot cheaper down here.

Then went for another walk around dusk in the other direction along the beach. Wasn’t as nice, weatherwise, as they had called for today. The high was only about 19C and it was windy.

Tomorrow we hope to make it to a new state. Neither one of us has ever been to Louisiana.
