Burson took me over to Galveston but unfortunattly it rained, so I only got a few pictures. We took the ferry over to Point Bolivar and saw some porpoises playing in the water on the way over.
I was able to see the Point Bolivar lighthouse which is at the western tip of Bolivar Peninsula. It was built in 1871 and was the third lighthouse at this location. The first one was a 65-foot red tower which was taken down in 1862 and put in storage during the Civil War. A three-story wooden tower was erected in its place 1865 and replaced by the current tower in 1873.
We also took a ride along the Gulf in Galveston and watched the surfers in the rain. It did quit for a few minutes and I was able to put my feet in the warm water.
The rest of the time was spent relaxing and getting ready to leave in the morning heading for Florida.
