John and I spent most of today in the sun. First, we went to the MD PhD party at the Yacht Club. It was scheduled to be at the new waterpark, Shlitterbahn, but they move it because of budget cuts. The club was nice with some really amazing boats, but we just spent most of the party hanging out by the pool. They also had a buffett lunch for us. One of the highlights was meeting the last two students of John's class. These two students are doing their PhD in Austin, but MD in Galveston. They seemed like alot of fun. I think John's class will be alot of fun as we get to know them more.
Afterwards, John finally agreed to go to the beach with me. So, we bought a couple of boogie boards and went to a beach on the west end. The beaches there are not near as busy. Unfortunately, the waves were not very high so we didn't stay in the water for very long. We much prefer to watch the waves roll in.
