Redfish Island Cruise

Tammy & I were cruising this Labor Day weekend in S/V Living and Loving Life out to Redfish Island in Galveston Bay near the Houston Ship Channel.  We anchored out between there and Bubba's Shrimp Palace had fun visiting with the crews from S/V Out Way Too and M/V Untide, as well as Dana & Donnie(Wimpy) who conned me into one cigar now for two later, I wont forget mine next time.  We were all awakened at 3:05am with heavy rollers from a huge ship moving down the channel, stuff crashing about.  After a couple of hours of observation making sure we held anchor I was able to get a nap.  We visited Redfish Island on the borrowed dinghy and watched Kelly McGuire perform from Star Gazer then head back. Dinghy-ed ashore for a hike to Railean Rum Distillery and lunch at Bubba's Shrimp Palace.....what a great time!
