W is for Water

W is for Water
I've been needing a mental health day-so I took it. I went with my friend Ev to Galveston Island.  Galveston is only about 45-1hour from where we leave so it's fantastic for a day trips. First we went to Moody Gardens. If you've never been to Moody Gardens you can find out more about it here. At first I was really bummed about Moody Gardens-they didn't have the Rainforest pyramid open and the Colonel Paddle Wheel Boat was closed. Those were the two attractions I had been really looking forward too. However, I decided not to let that ruin my day. I'm so glad that I didn't! We ended up going to the Aquarium pyramid at Moody Gardens. It was fantastic. Watching the fish swim. Is so relaxing. It reminded me about Matthew 6:30 where The Bible talks about how God clothes the lilies and how much more he will care for us. 
The penguins by far were the coolest! They are so funny! There was this one penguin who kept following us as well walked around the penguin habitat. I think it might have been because I had a lot of yellow on and he/she thought I was a penguin! LOL
After Moody Gardens we went to Gaidos. I had never been to Gaidos before. I had heard it was this wonderful classy, swank restaurant along the sea wall with fantastic food. They were right. I've never had such wonderfully, fresh food! Usually food that fresh comes from home. I especially loved their crab cheesecake. No it's not a dessert-it's an appetizer and AMAZING appetizer. The baked mahi-mahi was good too. I can't wait to go back and have some of their world famous oysters! 

No trip to the Galveston would be complete without stopping by Ben and Jerry's for some ice cream. I love their Pish Food! After lunch we made it to the beach. We choose to go to the west end of the island because its less developed. We drove right down to the shoreline and got out our chairs and blankets. I've never realize before how soothing the sound of the waves were. It was so relaxing. It seemed like the wind and sea washed all my worries and cares away.  After several hours we realized we had to come back to reality-like it or not. 
I hope you've enjoyed my letter W post. I apologize for not having more pictures. I left my camera in my friends car. As soon as I can I will update this post with pictures I took. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Why did I think you lived in Midland? If I lived within an hour of the sea I would be there ALL the time! I LOVE the ocean! Maybe I should come visit you and we can go together! :)
