We returned from our Galveston trip late yesterday. We had a really great time.
On Saturday me and Mrs. S spent the morning packing and getting the AS ready for the trip. Around 1:00 PM me and Lola (our Boston Terrior) hit the road. Mrs. S and Zeus stayed behind and waited for my mother which had to work and didnt want to drive down alone. We invited her along cause she loves Galveston as well.
Here is a shot of my co-pilot navigating from the front seat.......
(Yes she is wearing shaded goggles, she loves to hang her head out the window when we slow down and go through towns)
We made good time traveling and even stopped and got a chance to get on the CAT scales and see how we looked weight wise. I had planned to get a couple diffrent weights but the lady helping me wasnt to thrilled and seemed to think I was taking up to much time so we just done it once.
Ive never been on a ferry with an RV, I was alittle nervous since is is such a tight fit, but with Lola cheering me on we made it and fit nicley. Got a lot of strange looks.
At about 5:45 or so we arrived at the Dellanera RV Park. Its in a great location (or I think it is) Its right off Seawall DR but its not right in the middle of all the action, its far enough down that its outside the main fuss but close enough you can be there in 2-3 minutes.
The staff was really friendly and checking in only took a few minutes.
There are several sites that are ocean view but they are mainly for rigs that are 25 ft or shorter. But there are a few ocean view that can handle big rigs. The sites are full hook ups and are laid out very nicely. When we first arrived we were hidden in a sea of Class A Rvers. Man there were some huge ones, but still they couldn't resist looking and coming over to ask about the AS.
We setup on a pull through site and when I stopped on the cement pad I noticed that the trailer was sitting very well. I checked the levels and wow the trailer was perfectly level. I was shocked.
Thats never happened before.
After setting up we quickly went to check out the beach front which is only steps away from the camp site and I was really in for a shock when I seen how clean the beach was. Now granted it wasnt white sand beach with blue clear water, but it was amazingly clean. No trash or funny smells. I was actually really nice being Galveston.
Galveston has a lot to offer including the water park which was only 3 miles away and Mrs. S and Mom enjoyed that day. I chose to stay at the Rv Park and enjoy the Houston Texans season opener win against the Colts from the comfort of the AS.
There is some great food to eat and of course the shopping for the women.
I did stumble across a very intresting find which is called Bishops Palace, I strongly recommend you take the tour of this house while in Galveston. Its a 20,000 sq ft home that was built in the mid 1800 and has survived two hurricanes! It was simply amazing! Its 10 dollars for the tour and there are no photos allowed to be taken inside the home. It has some wonderful history behind it.
Well we had a great time and will for sure return to Dellanera RV Park and we think its great for anyone looking for a Galveston stay. Nothing like staying by the beach in the cool breeze and watching your AS shine in the sun.
It was another successful and evenful AS outing and we cant wait for the next one.
To the open roads.........
