2011.10 Galveston Island and Moody Gardens

We had the wonderful opportunity to leave the October snow of Idaho and visit the warmth of Galveston Island.  We only had a few days to explore the island and when we were not swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, we were photographing the wildlife and scenery. 

After enjoying the beach we headed to Moody Gardens and toured their Rainforest Pyramid.  The pyramid houses a wonderful selection of tropical trees/plants and animals.  We spent 3 hours walking around and enjoying the sights and sounds.  We felt the experience of seeing and photographing these plants and animals was well worth the $20/person admission fee.
