Aug. 6 – It’s Water Park day.  We got to visit and experience Schlitterbahn in Galveston Island, Texas.  I think it was our favorite part besides the beach day during our family vacation in Galveston.  It was very enjoyable in the water.  There were so much interaction and fun rides, too.  Darling daughter spent most of the time in the Torrent beach for kids.  There were slides that she really enjoyed in the Torrent beach for kids.

We also tried the Loopy Luge and the Guada Loopy.  Oh how fun it was sliding down the huge swirly tubes.  DD and I did it I think four times.  🙂  It was a high climb on the stairs to the rides though.  But as soon as we sat down and get situated in the inflatable floats, the thrill begins.  Then I challenged myself to try one of the highest and popular slide in Schlitterbahn.  The Rohr!  I didn’t try the Fust ‘N Furious.  It was way to high for me. I was screaming my heart out while I was sliding down in that blue tube.  Lol!

My dear husband challenged me to try the Rohr!.  I told him that’s enough for me.  I don’t want to have a heart attack. Hahaha!  It was thrilling and fun.

What’s great about being there is that, you can bring your own food.  There’s a picnic area where you can rest and eat.  I liked that a lot.

Galveston Island Trip Day 3: Beach Day

It's beach day.  Galveston Island, Texas.
It’s beach day. Galveston Island, Texas.

It’s Tuesday and our plan today is to spend the whole afternoon at the beach.  We looked for a great place last night to hang out today but we haven’t decided where to go.  So this morning, while having breakfast at Denny’s, we asked the server where is the best place to go swimming.  The guy suggested the Stewart Beach on the East side.  So we went there.  It closes at 5:30 P.M.

Rentals:

Umbrella and chairs – $25 whole day
Parking – $8 per vehicle a day

I think the rental and parking fees are affordable.  It is better than paying an hourly parking on the roadside.

It was a very pleasant day at the beach.  Though it was a hot sunny day, it was breezy.  My darling daughter enjoyed playing with the sand – trying to build a sand castle. We brought all our beach things with us:  towels, beach toys, sunscreen, water and juice (in the cooler in the car), sunglasses, and an umbrella.  And you know what?  I lost my sunglasses when a big wave rushed over me.  After playing chase with the waves and when the tides got low, we fed the seagulls for a few minutes before heading to the shower room.  When we were on our way to the car, we saw this huge green inflatable slide.  My dear husband wanted us to try it.  So we did.  We got to slide two times for $5.  DD didn’t like it because she got scared.
