No Fair!!!!! Oooooh, Ooooooh Take me!!! I wasn't abel to get to the TX coast this year, But I guess the trip to Alaska made up for it. I bet you will be bringing back some octo food with you. Are there native TX octos? I don't seem to recall.
Here are a few to give you the flavor of the place, far removed from the Texas plains.
The East Beach is more than a mile wide, at the end of the island and is where large groups go to party. Popular for Spring Break, but pretty well deserted this time of year. Fishing is good off all the jetties and the water quality is quite good.
These are landscape (seascape) photos, which I'm partial to taking. Will post some more on another forum in a day or two.
