On the 18th we went for a day trip to Galveston Island and the old port city of Galveston.
Then we went on a tour of ‘the 1877 Iron Barque ELISSA’ at pier 22 on Galveston Island. The ELISSA is one of the only traditional “tall ships” still sailing regularly. The ELISSA is a riveted iron hall with 3 soaring masts 1/4 acre of sails and 7 miles of rigging. The sail this ship once a year for about 2 weeks, this year in April.
Then off for home.
