As I got everyone pumped up to go on the Rudy Cruise, I planned a little surprise for a good deal of the Cruisers. We'd make one final dash to the the waterparks. I couldn't have planned it any better, because last weekend when we got into Galveston, the waterparks were closing down for the winter season. You'd think with Galveston being on the coast that at least Schlitterbahn would be open year round, right? Well it is.

Although most of the waterpark's were not as full as a busy summer weekend, there were still a lot of last minute takers at Schlitterbahn and at the Palm Beach waterpark at Moody Gardens. What did surprise me was that Schlitterbahn Galveston stays open year round (mostly on weekends here's the schedule) because it has an indoor waterpark. So when the weather outside gets really nasty I can still go to the beach and stick my toes in the sand, all the while mother nature can have the great outdoors. It's kinda of a funny thing because, I used to never want to go to the coast, the beach or any kind of water park. As I've gotten older that is all I want to do. I want to sit by the ocean or the pool and just chill.

I guess we will all have to wait until spring for now, that's when we have lots of tickets to NR-H2O near Dallas, Schlitterbahn both in Fredricksburg and in Galveston and Hurrican Harbor in Arlington. I just hope winter goes by really fast, because I have toes that belong in the sand.

This is the Galveston Schlitterbahn
