Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itOur last night at sea and we both had a great sleep, up early as usual just after 5 am still dark out here. Was going to sit on our balcony but heck it's cold out there! only 62F. Ok ,did some computing inside for a bit got dressed and a walkabout the deck for a few laps and a few coffees consumed. We are in Galveston port now and the debarkation supposed to begin at 8:15 am, We found out yesterday at the info meeting there is actually just over 4,900 passengers on board , that is a lot for people to get off 12 levels of this ship and only one gangway. They called out your deck then proceed to 3, We sat on deck 11 in the sunshine reading and waited. I would read a bit and a few laps. read and walk, actually got 5 miles done here on deck while waiting and reading. We chose not to have breakfast , because neither of us were hungry trying to get our food intake to a manageable level again.

Finally at 11 am we proceeded to debark and on shore then the lineup for US customs, They do not rush even though 10 or more agents, it still takes a while to check almost 5 thousand people. Cleared customs by 1 pm finally, then the shuttle to our car and on the road back to Willis Texas 102 miles north on I-45 straight through Houston, Pretty good drive and only a couple of slow downs. Back home by 3:10 pm.
