Time to head south east today for the shores of The Gulf of Mexico. Our route now begins to take us into the greener lands of Southern Texas and leaves the deserts of the West behind us. The coastal route into Galveston is spectacular with huge holiday homes built on stilts and a sea road that sometimes appears to be lower than the ocean that is passing by to your right! Galveston is a busy coastal town with many busy bars and restaurants to help us chill out for the evening.
Day 12: Galveston to Henderson, Louisiana (260 miles)
First stop of the day will be to board the ferry from Galveston to Port Bolivar across the mouth of Galveston Bay.

Son of a gun, we’ll have some fun tonight!
