Night of Pleasure, Island Hoppers

     At the last moment Friday, I randomly threw together an evening get away with Michael. I begged pleaded asked my sister to watch Marcella so he and I could go to Galveston for the night. Now, anyone who knows me knows I do not do spontaneous. I am a plan ahead, like far in advance, 6 months a head, kind of girl. Alas, I have been standing at the edge of the cliff of despair lately and my relationship has taken a toll of it. I owed it to myself, to my husband, and to our marriage to splurge a little. Let loose and fancy free?  Foot loose and free fancy? Get the hell out of dodge or at least as much as $200 bucks could get you at last moment. 
 See what happens when you don't plan ahead, no, I don't mean the traffic, I mean the lack of a good pedicure for a photo shot of you waiting for the damn ferry.
     Our little stretch of the Gulf Coast isn’t the most beautiful coast in the United States. The oil rigs and many hurricanes have left it destroyed. Experiencing it is still amazing though. To get to Galveston Island we go west on Highway 73 through Winnie Texas. We use to love going down Highway 87 via Sabine Pass (Old Beach Road), but this road has been closed for many years, unrepaired since Hurricane Jerry in 1989. Rumor has it, it is now a nude beach and if you’re brave enough, you can drive around the barriers and sun bathe there. I of course have never attempted this because I always forget my sunscreen I am a lady and that would be wrong.

 (No I DO NOT know who that person is, I googled McFaddin Beach looking for a picture of the barriers and that picture came up)

      The wait for the ferry is like a crap shoot. It could be less then thirty minutes or four days. Okay, not really four days, but in the Texas heat, it seems like an eternity. Once on the ferry though, it is like a mini cruise line, sorta, well minus the food, the alcohol, the entertainment, wait what was I saying? Oh yeah, like a mini cruise uhm we got birds y'all. That's it.

Texas invented Crazy Birds Y'all

Okay, birds and pride

      I tried to take a professional photograph on the top level deck of the ferry, but the wind whipped our asses, so we had to go inside the viewing room for a nice enough shot.

Ass Whipped Shot

Sweet shot

On a ferry watching a ferry, isn't he cute?

I wasn't really feeding the birds, but pretending to feed the birds to trick y'all, I ate the only damn crackers I could find (left over from Marci's school snack) because I was fucking hungry! The birds did not think this was funny and in revenge tried to shit on me. Michael however, did laugh pretty hard at the site of it all. It was good to hear him laugh, even if it was at me.

     When we finally got to the island we headed straight to Bubba Gump's Restaurant,  I hadn't shared any of the crackers with Michael and now he was starving. We had to park about 2 miles down the road on the seawall and walk to the newly opened Pleasure Pier were Gump's is located. Once we got there 10 hours later, fat ass people take a while to walk three miles y'all, the matridee metreedee person who sits you, an eighteen year old girl with a smirked grin said it would be a two hour long wait, and I about fainted. Michael said sweetly, "We can go somewhere else baby", and I gave him the I fucking just walked 4 miles shithead look and so he sighed and put our name on the list.

  Shortly after we were told by a sweet young man, that the bar was first come first serve, so I dragged Michael in and hoovered closely over a couple sitting there enjoying their meal. Within minutes, hassled free, they finished fast and we had a sweet spot at the bar close to the beer draft and I was good to go! I didn't get a photo of the restaurant, because I was too busy getting smashed, eating, but here is a shot of the entrance to the new fun packed pier.

     Instead of paying the $20's to walk down the pier and watch people puke after getting off the rides, I decided I wanted to buy Marci some gifts instead. We found her a cute little dolphin necklace with rhinestones and a pirate's telescope. After this, we headed to the hotel. I did not take pictures of what happened in the hotel room because I am not a porn star, I don't want you to get jealous of what my husband is packing in his suitcase, I am a lady, damn can't y'all remember that? I do however have a beautiful picture of the nightly pleasure you can receive at Galveston Texas.

Taken from 6 miles away where our car was parked.

All in all, our night was very wonderful, and if you get a chance, take a moment and do something spontaneous. It may just bring you great pleasure.
