The plan was to leave Freeport Marina (used to be Freeport City Marina) around 9:00 AM and go to Harborwalk for the night then return home on Tuesday by noon. Storms were predicted to go through in the early morning and we were not real sure what the weather was going to do after that. After heading out, we kept looking at the radar, weather stations and winds. We arrived at Harborwalk by 1:00, the winds were low and it was just a beautiful day so we decided to go for it and head all the way home. The Harborwalk restaurant was going to be closed anyway, so would be either sitting around there with little to do or enjoy the rest of the day on the water and keep going.

As we were coming towards the Galveston Island Causeway bridge we passed a tow and for the first time ever, the Captain of the tow asked us to give him a slow bell. We did not have the heart to tell him that this is all we could do! He must have thought we were like a sport fishing boat because they put out big wakes.
We arrived back at Portofino Harbour Marina and Yacht Club around 5:00 PM. After settling in and cleaning up a bit, we headed to T-Bone Toms for wings. Josh was thinking about them all day!
The end of another trip! I must say, after traveling past Lake Charles into Florida, traveling this area is getting kinda boring. So much more to do going the other direction.
