Nita said we would leave at 9:00 this morning and so we DID!!!
We stopped to pose for a picture before we set off!!!
Packed tight! Well, not quite - I still see some room for 'debris' if I find any!!
Deanie is the Queen of the Back Seat!!
Nita put on some Momma and Papas music and we blasted ourselves down the road like we were teenagers!!!
We are ON our way, ladies!!!
First stop - Collin Street Bakery!!!
This was Nita's very first visit!!
I bought a coffee, sausage roll, and apricot ginger scone!!
Deanie just sat there and looked pretty!
I also bought an entire apricot pie!!!!
We are going to PARTY!!!!
Back in the car and on down the Interstate to the next stop!
Just three sisters out having fun!
Nita was browsing......
Cool looking bird houses!!!
All three of us got a good laugh at this!!!
'Caps' was what we called this back in the late 1950's!
We never had a cap gun to shoot but we did have rocks and we would pound the caps on concrete and make them pop and have the best time!!!
LOVE these signs!!!
We had a lot of fun stretching our legs and looking at all the cool stuff at Buc-ee's!!!
You KNOW we are in TEXAS!!!!
Back on the road and we change drivers as we go through Houston!
I drove from The Woodlands until we passed Nassa 1 and then we switch back to Nita taking the wheel. Now I MAY have got lost for a little while trying to find the I45 South HOV lane!!! And I MAY have frightened a pedestrian when I was attempting to get into another lane to make the appropriate turn......but we DID it!!!!
We were so glad to BE here!!!
LOVE the sounds of the waves!!!
Our first meal on the island was Benno's Cajun Seafood - aka Benno's on the Beach!
It is my FAVORITE place to eat in Galveston!!!
The food was delicious!!!!
And the wine is served in frosted beer mugs!!!
It was a wonderful meal!!!!
From there we went to Academy Sports to find shoes for Deanie!
You know, it is easy to leave something important at HOME!!!
She found a pretty cool pair of Skechers Memory Foam!!!
Amber has put us on to this brand and we are ALL loving these comfy shoes!!!
We checked into our hotel and realized we should have checked in as soon as we hit town!
It was booked solid so instead of the desired third floor - we got a room on the first floor!!!
Whatever!!! The beach can be seen - WAYYYYYY out there - if you have binoculars!!
We don't really mind! We are just so happy to BE here!!
We tucked Deanie into her bunk bed and Nita and I went out for a walk on the beach.
We sat together right there on those rocks for awhile talking about our lives, our past and our future!!! We picked up a few shells and made plans to spend a good part of the day tomorrow right here!!!
We are loving our trip and are looking forward to tomorrow!!!
Deanie is asleep in her bunk and Nita has the bedroom while I get the sofa bed!
They are both sound asleep by now and I will be soon!
We all called our husbands today - several times!!
We miss them and they miss us - but it is important to take some time out to simply be SISTERS!!!!
*****Note to my Facebook friends!!!*****
You may want to hide me for the next few days as I am posting a blow by blow account of our weekend!!!! It may be a bit of an overload!!!
