About 27 miles north of CC on the coast is Rockport. Rockport is a pleasant coastal fishing and art town. There are no unsafe places to walk even at midnight. One can still leave their door wide open. Aransas County has 25,000 people ( Rockport about 12k) and its growing fast. Because of boating and fishing there are more men than women. The newspaper is horrible. Nice breezes in the summer but like most of Texas its still hot- great winters.
The people are "fatter than average"? Is that a statistic for that area or for Texas? It didn't seem like that was the case when we were there

Case, I didn't realize that you had lived in South Texas at one time. Does your family prefer the northern part because of the business opportunities your Dad had there or do you just prefer it in general? It seems that Northern Tx. gets hit with much more turbulent weather then the coastal areas.

Chickrae, that area of Ok is so pretty. We really liked it east of Tulsa~very close to the Ark. border. It's interesting to know that you like Tx. We've never been to either, (Galveston or CC) but somehow Galveston just really sounds nice.

No, no, Jammie. I never lived in South Texas. My family had considered the idea, but we never moved there. We always lived in North Texas.

Did you get to see any of the other beaches in Corpus? Most of the locals consider North Beach to be inferior to the beaches on Padre and Mustang Islands.

By the way, I agree that the Galveston beach is similar to North Beach...just longer and more crowded. To me, Mustang and North Padre are better beaches than Galveston and North Beach...just wondering if you saw it the same way, if you got to see the beaches out there.

Yeah, that's Mustang Island. Another one that's great is the National Seashore...no development at all.

Yes it is very pretty. Last summer when I visited before I was married we went to the outdoor play Oklahoma and it was gorgeous there. Owasso is very close to Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas borders too.

I saw the north beach and then we took the Ferry across to Port Aransas and I would say that beach is maybe a little bit better. It was still very crowded but it was Memorial weekend and all. I would say that it was nicer then Corpus north beach but then I was just visiting and not an expert. Of course its not the Carribean but then its much cheaper to live too.
