South Central Texas Coast Classic
07 November 2011 | Near Matagorda Bay
The picture says a thousand words, in Texan that is. Cruising the south central Texas ICW is a wonder of wildlife and wild sights. Where else can you see an oil rig out in the marsh and a Texas Longhorn on the beach in the same hour? (To see the wildlife click on the Gallery!) We are currently docked--for free--in yet another failed housing development on a grand scale. Somebody lost a LOT of $$ here. But it is placed conveniently between Matagorda Harbor Marina (where we docked last night...sort of a fish camp with State Park like amenities) and Port Aransas/Corpus Christi.
Tomorrow we will try to beat the next front and arrive in Port A, as the locals call it, for some R & R and laundry. We are having fun, laughing a lot and swaping tales with each other. Don's mom is truly enjoying herself and has been very helpful with all the work involved in cruising.
