CIMG8056 This structure was visible from the ship while it was docked in Galveston. The structure in the center is, according to S, a dry dock — a platform that is used to lift a ship out of the water to repair it. And those tall things of “lacy” metal are “legs” of oil rigs. When an oil rig is assembled, the “legs” are submerged under water.
This was the beginning of our Caribbean cruise out of Galveston, Texas in November of 2007. Our ship was named Ecstasy. The ship sailed from Galveston TX, to Cozumel and Progresso (Mexico) and back. We got to see some of the archaeological sites of Mexico: Mayan ruins and pyramids.
