In the Rear View

Thank you, Escapes parking lot

We rolled into Galveston, TX late at night. Too late to camp, we decided to sleep in the car for the first time.

After casing several hotels and parking lots, we settled on the Escapes resort because it looked secluded but was still well-lit and safe. As we were transferring our stuff from the trunk to the front seats (so we could fold the back seats down), a security guard walked up and informed us we had to move across a row of bushes to the beach side of the lot.

So, we did this, and slept well knowing we were safe, having a security detail watch over us.

But, he failed to protect us from the love bugs. We slept with the windows cracked and woke up to about a dozen of those babies in the car.
