Look what happened now...
Warning: 25+ Pictures
So we are off on a roadtrip to the coast. (Which is Texan for we are driving to the beach.)
I grew up spending my summers at the coast. My parents made one out of state trip a year for vacation, but summers were for fishing, boating, picking up shells and lazing on the beach. Best part of my childhood.
The best beach in Texas is South Padre Island. Way south & worth it if you ever make it to Texas. Ck out the link:
South Padre Island seashore is a resort area that has a lot offer. A lot of people like to go to Galveston (which is close to Houston) But I don't really care for the vibe. (Rick likes it, lol) There are tiny fishing communities all along the coast line. Some cater to real fishermen, others to spring breakers. So it all depends on what your looking for.
We always plan to do too much when we get together. :( never enough time.
And, this trip was no different. We actually had to cut the trip short because something came up, (that I really can't discuss here) with one of the other girls. I could have stayed, but of course no car...:(
So we ended up coming back early. But we did mange to squeeze in a few things....This is on the way to SPI.
We weren't there long before it started POURING rain.
So we left this area & went down to the boat dock. (A few more People there.) Saw some awesome airboats too. The boats were coming in ahead of the storm and we didn't want to get in the way, so drove over to the fishing pier.
Which is considered to be Good Luck, which I think we all needed about then. Started getting really dark and foggy, then the wind really picked up..
There is more to see & do on Goose Island. (But mostly people camp and fish there.)
We didn't want to fight the weather to picnic or see anything else. Maybe next time. Lol
Next post will be on the Mission in Goliad, Texas.
