This is vacation.
Twin sis Jessie, suitemate Bethany, and myself
The drive was eighteen hours and we made it about eleven hours before we stopped for a hotel in Grenada, Mississippi. I'm pretty sure that I slept at least eleven or twelve of the eighteen hours. We did well for four ladies and a GPS! We drove through New Rome, Grenada, Brazil, Cairo, Haiti, and at least three more international cities that I can't remember... world travelers between central Indiana and SE Texas! The drive was pretty uneventful with the exception of the ol' semis honking game. I lost track between evening day one and morning day two, but I think I probably got fifteen or twenty to honk.
Have I mentioned that we're in Galveston, Texas? We're right on the coast of Galveston Island, and the beach is just across the street. It's supposed to rain off-and-on this afternoon, so in a few minutes we're going to get in the car and explore the island. We have already seen many buildings still sitting in remains from Hurricane Ike (Sep '08) damage.
Sidenote: This note was written from my balcony and posted from the parking lot of the neighboring Econolodge Hotel. Yesterday we went to IHOP for dessert and free wifi (mostly for the free wifi), but one can't have IHOP everyday.
Love love love,
