Rockport Sunrise On A Cloudy Day

Rockport is a great little town on the Texas Gulf Coast. We took a little vacation there with family this past week. It was nice to get away for awhile and I think we needed a change of scenery! Nothing better than waking up and throwing open the curtains to a waterfront view of the sunrise over Aransas Bay!

Our trip included BBQ's and a crab boil at the picnic spot right off the water, fishing on the 1000 foot long pier, crabbing and eating the freshest seafood, including the best oysters on the half shell I've ever had plus lots of walks down the bay front road with our two dogs and family.

We also visited The Big Tree at Goose Island State Park, the Lamar Cemetery, Rockport Beach Park, and a beautiful place named Schoenstatt!

Here's a photo I took while we road the Ferry Boat to Port Aransas:

I have a lot more pictures to share plus suggestions on what to do if you ever find yourself in the charming Rockport-Fulton area. More to come!


  1. Nice photos, Kel. And sweet memories. :o)

  2. looks so nice! would LOVE a getaway to a coast anywhere at this point - and Lake Erie coast does not count....

  3. Yes! There is definitely something special about making good memories on the coast. :)

  5. YAY! This is perfect timing because it's been rainy and gloomy all week so I needed a ray of sunshine! Thanks so much.
