Is the Gulf of Mexico the Ocean?
If I am standing in the water at Galveston Beach, am I standing in the ocean?

No, the Gulf of Mexico is a gulf.
A gulf is a part of an ocean or a sea.
The Gulf of Mexico is a deep inlet or an arm of the Atlantic Ocean.
So, yes, if you are standing in water at Galveston beach you are standing in a part of an ocean.

Nope, it does lead to the ocean, so in a way you're in the same water as the ocean.
