We are spending our last week of this trip at the beach. Port Aransas is a town of 3,000+ on Mustang Island, a barrier island on the Texas Gulf Coast near Corpus Christi. It's the entry to the port of Corpus Christi, a fishing town, and a beach town that survives largely on tourism. It was devastated by Hurricane Harvey last August and is still in the process of recovering. Clean-up and construction are going on all over town.
For those of you missing the ocean, enjoy the sights and sounds below. It has been really windy the last few days, with 35 mph gusts, and the picture below shows how churned up the surf is. Some brave souls are participating in a surfing contest here today!
It took a concerted effort that included a couple afternoons of day-drinking by the channel to get these photos of some large ships. You're welcome!
And a few more images from Port A.
