Rockport was such a nice time. I’ve never seen the Gulf of Mexico before and this was perfect. The beach is very clean and the people very nice. It’s no Atlantic or Pacific Ocean but it was nice to visit and well worth the trip.

Good for all ages, especially on a beautiful day. Many folks stop and take photos while on this ‘path’.

If you visit Rockport, be sure to walk on the breakwater at the end of Bearskin Neck. It is an easy walk on the rocks and great for fun photos.
