What shall we do today ?

Well after being to Six Flags Astroworld the day before we decided to go for a drive this day and head to the beach.

We passed all the NASA exits along the I-45 and ended up in Galveston Island. The beach wasn't crowded but we didn't want to go to the beach so we drove to the Botanic Gardens and Aquarium..

The first stop we made was the Rainforest Café Area to get the obligatory souvenirs.

A short walk

We also took a short walk along the beach boulevard.

The ride from Houston is easy to do so if you like the beach and your in Houston just go over here. The distance is about 80km / 50 miles with a one hour traveling time.
