10.14.2011 Ocean Star Drillin Rig & Museum, Galveston Sailing Regatta

We had seen the Ocean Star Drilling Rig and Museum on the Galveston harborside the other day and decided we wanted to go back and tour it. Here are some photos.

The Ocean Star is a retired drilling platform and they turned it into a museum to demonstrate and explain how an well is drilled over water.

Below is a photo of the Ocean Star when it was in use in the Gulf of Mexico. The Ocean Star is a Jackup Drilling Rig. The museum tells the story of oil drilling and the three kinds of drilling rigs.

The pelicans were snoozing on the break water.

Today was the annual sail boat regatta in Galveston. It was a beautiful sight seeing the hundreds of different boats sailing down the coastline of the Gulf.
