This was our first time at a Texas beach, which is completely different from an east coast beach. I have never been on a beach where you can drive on the beach (legally) and see oil rigs from the shore. That was all new to me but ultimately it was still a beach. There is nothing better than laying on the beach with an ice cold Mountain Dew listening to old school music while reading a book about the beautiful south until falling asleep ensuring that you have a nice toasty burn before returning home. Gotta love it!We couldn't believe that we live less than an hour from this beach and had never gone. We will be taking many more trips to this beach for sure!
