Galveston Vacation Day 4
Our original plan for Thursday was to return to the beach, however Kate and Trey both decided they had had enough of the beach. Trey was starting to get just a tad too red, and Kate scrunched up her face and said "That water is just so.....salty. It gets on my skin." So rather than drag them both out there and listen to them complain all day, I decided to take them to the Moody Gardens Aquarium. Mom and Richard headed back to the beach alone for the afternoon. But before we could leave for the aquarium, we had to go downstairs and play putt putt on the hotel's free course. It was Kate's first time playing. Her form needs a little bit of work, but I think that's Daddy's domain so I just let her do her thing.
After we met up with Mom and Richard again, it was time to head back over to Moody Gardens to board the Colonel Paddlewheeler, a replica 1800s paddlewheel boat that takes you on an hour-long cruise in Offatts Bayou. We did the 7pm cruise, which meant we had an amazing sunset show while we cruised. We enjoyed ourselves and it wasn't a bad little cruise for the money.
