A place in Texas
It is now 5 years ago that we've been down there, but the memory of that place is still there, and it is a good one.
I am thinking of the tiny town of Seadrift,TX.
After we had spent quality time on South Padre Island we had ventured on ending up in this small town by the San Antonio Bay.
Seadrift's original way of living was made by the shrimping industry, and there are still shrimpers moored in the small harbour.
The Beacon 7 RV-Park was as tiny as the town and offered only 7 sites all w. hook-ups. They had a very reasonable monthly fee and offered a a very special private shower house. The owners,Dean and Georgie are the most friendly people one can imagine and would bend backover to make you feel at home in their park. With only 7 sites in the park you get to know everybody within the first day.
Besides of having a nice quiet location with the possibility of a leisure stroll along the water's edge, there are interesting tours to neighbouring communities and towns, like the cities of Port Lavaca and Victoria's historic district, the old Town of Goliad, the fishery harbour of Rockport, Copano Bay, the historic town of Indianola, a National Wildlife Refuge w. alligators a.s.o. We spent a month there and never got bored.

We enjoyed the very relaxed atmosphere of this small town. Maybe we will return there one day.


Thanks again for visiting!
