We went to Kemah Texas over the weekend to celebrate our son and daughter in-law birthday. We had a great time with them Friday then Friday night we took them and our two grandsons plus their girlfriends out for a birthday dinner.
My son and daughter in-law live on their 40 foot sail boat. Every time we have been down there he has had some project going refurbishing the boat that he couldn’t take us out on it. So Saturday around noon we headed out into Galveston Bay. The wind was blowing around 25 knots so it was a little rough but the boat handled great. They extended the Jib sail out about half way and the back sail about the same. For as windy as it was we sailed verily smooth. We were doing around seven knots out to the ship channel. we sailed around for a couple of hours it was so relaxing for me and Charlotte of course the Kids and their friend who came along as a mate did all the work. We had a great time with the kids, but the weather back home was forecasting snow so we decided to cut the trip short and head home Sunday.
Monday 05/25/2015. Jeff and Amy broke camp and headed for home, We got up and around and after breakfast CeAnne headed back to Kansas. We were going to go over to Tyler Texas and visit with some friends that just moved there. We knew that they had been getting a lot of rain there and the weather channel was saying that they were to get 4 to 5 more inches. After talking it over we decided to go ahead and go to Houston.
Our son Jeremy hast to leave on a business trip early Tuesday morning and that was one of the reasons we had thought about detouring through Tyler. It was a little cloudy but it was a nice day so far. We spotted a Firebirds Burritos as we were driving through Bryan Texas so we stopped for lunch. As we were leaving the restaurant it came a good down poor but it did not last long thank goodness. We talked with the kids and they said they would be at Kemah Texas where the boat they had bought was kept. Jeremy and Aubrey have been working on it getting it ready to sail. We made it there in plenty of time to visit with the kids and see their boat.
