Ferry Ride in Galveston

Galveston is an island off the gulf coast of Texas connected to the mainland on one side by a bridge. The other side of the island is linked to other near by islands via ferry that are free. People drive their cars into the ferry on one side and drive off on the other getting on with their works. The unique feature is that this ferry is completely free of cost and one can take as many trips as one pleases. We took up the task, but we left the car on the Galveston side and just climbed into the ferry to enjoy the ride and watch the sights of the sea and the breeze.

The ferry ride is also a good opportunity to see Dolphins as they jump out of water and play in the surf created by the boats propellers. Here are some pictures of the ferry ride. There is no picture of the ferry itself but of what I saw around in the sea waters as I traveled in the ferry.
