My happy place - A place with expansive flats that connect out to the ocean. A place that’s still wild and feels the way it should. A place that offers up breathtaking sunsets on a calm evening when you can hardly discern sky from water. A place where ducks, whooping cranes, and blue heron are at one with wild boars. A place where you look down and see an ecosystem rich with sea creatures: blue crabs, stingrays, shrimp, fingerlings, and tiny crustaceans. A place where +35” Redfish come to sunbathe in clear, skinny water in the winter months, offering up some of the most fantastic sight fishing on the fly imaginable. A place where the locals are so full of life, friendly, genuine, and outdoors-oriented...they smile, say y’all, and greet others with southern hospitality and charm. A place where natural disasters strike but we bounce back. A place where one can experience the ultimate state of tranquility and peace of mind while sipping a cold IPA, celebrating our precious time we share on beautiful planet earth.
This place is Rockport, Texas.
