This will be known as travel day! We left Round Rock around 9:30 AM. We had little to no traffic and made it to Galveston by 1:30ish. We got checking into the hotel and we were bumped up to a King Suite. We had a balcony with a view of the Rainforest Cafe which was neat. At night they have a volcano that erupts every 30 minutes or so. We walked around the hotel to check it out some, and parked the truck over on the side where our room was. We also spoke with the bellman about setting up our shuttle time. We got booked for the first shuttle which would leave the next morning around 11:30 AM. We came back up to the room and relaxed on the balcony. We decided to go eat at the Rainforest Cafe for dinner around 4:30 pm. That was a neat place to eat, but it is expensive. You are paying for the atmosphere but we decided since we were on vacation, why not. We went back to our room after dinner while waiting to hear fromt her est of the group. We heard from Emily around 7ish. She came up to our room and we chatted for a bit. Shortly after she got here, her phone rang and it was the group wanting to meet up. We decided to walk along the sea wall and ended back at the Rainforest Cafe so they could eat, and Ian and I just had a few drinks. We had a pretty fun time talking about the cruise we would be going on the next day. We came back to the hotel around 10 and went our separate ways for now. They all ended up getting on the first shuttle as well so we would see them in the morning.
Next up Day 1 of the cruise!
