Moody Gardens

We had a great time at Moody Gardens over the Labor Day weekend. We were planning on staying until Monday, but with Hurricane Gustav barrelling into the Gulf we decided that it would be smart to get back to our home base on Sunday in case we needed to prepare the boat the possibly evacuate. Fortunately that didn't happen. We did enjoy getting out on the water. I got to get some great dolphin pictures as they swam along with us for about 20 minutes in the ship channel.

Man has always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much...the wheel, New York, wars and so on...while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man...for precisely the same reason. ~Douglas Adams

We were down Sunday morning- seen your boat gone and remembered y'all were doing the moody trip again. Y'all have got some great dolphin photo's. Hay if y'all ever have to bail out of the marina due to bad weather and need a place to crash, we're just up the road off 45/dixie farm rd, so just give us a call- I mean it.
