Our cruise came to an abrupt halt and we had to 'move on'...
We decided that it would be best to skirt the Houston traffic and use the Galveston-Port Bolivar Ferry to cross the bay and head towards Florida. The ferry ride is all of 18 minutes long and is 2.7 miles; nice that the Texas Department of Transportation has provided it free of charge! (Not something you would find in New Jersey)
While on board I caught this shot of double seagulls...a first for me!
It only takes nine minutes to load/unload the ferry so it was within minutes after we were on land again that we could see the remaining destruction caused by hurricane Ike back in September 2008. Pretty nasty.
