Houston del 6 / Houston part 6


Igår hadde vi en fantastisk flott tur til Mexicogulfen. Med Leslie som sjåfør og Narda som co-pilot dro vi til Galveston, Seabrook og NASA Space center - ca 1 times kjøretur sørøst for Houston.
På Galveston Island var det mange flotte viktorianske hus som har stått der siden forrige årtusen, mens andre bar preg av herjinger fra stormen Ike 13.september 2008. Alle husene ved sjøen sto på påler for å sikre seg mot høyvann.
På Stewards Beach, Galveston, prøvde vi vanntemperaturen - herlig.

Yesterday we had a wonderful trip to the Mexican Gulf. Leslie was driving and Narda sat in front as a co-pilot when we were heading for Galveston, Seabrook and NASA Space Center - about an hour southeast of Houston.
On Galveston Island there are many beautiful old houses from the last millenium, and other houses were hit by the hurricane Ike on September 13th 2008.
All the houses were buildt on stocks in case of high tide.
On Stewards Beach, Galveston, we walked into the ocean - nice!











På bryggerestauranten "The Fisherman's Wharf", mellom skuta og cruiseskipet, spiste vi deilig lunsj.
On the restaurant between the tallship and the cruiseship we had our lunch.




Seabrook: Pelicans and sailboats.



NASA Space Center - Houston:






Dagen ble avsluttet på en mexicansk restaurant og her var det full Halloweenfeiring.
Den mest kreative av dem alle var denne karen som tok et boblebad!

We ended this fantastic day at a Mexican restaurant and many of the guest were celebrating Halloween. The most creative costume was on this guy who took a bubblebath. "Pop me - pop me", he said.
