The sun shone most of the day today. I took the ferry from Galveston Island to Bolivar Peninsula this morning. It is free. I had ridden a ferry once as a pedestrian but today was the first time I drove onto a ferry with my car. The ride was 18 minutes long.
This afternoon I drove down the coast about 30 miles and then drove thru Galveston Island State Park. When I paid my fee to visit the state park, they gave me a flyer stating that bacteria levels were high in both the gulf and bay and that they recommended no swimming. It was 80 degrees, humid and windy here today.
