Trolley Time!!

Well, the island has one of the original three trolley's back! They have been doing testing on the first trolly the past few days and are putting the final tweaks on it. Once they get this one figured out the second of three should be coming back very shortly. They have said the second one is about 95% done already! The spirit of Galveston is alive and well!

Galveston, Texas, has had many names over its life. The Spanish were shipwrecked on its shallow jagged white sandy beaches. From that day forward, they officially named the sandbar the "Isla de Malhado" or "Isle of Doom."
