“It’s not Florida.” I must’ve heard this 100 times when I started telling people about our next trip. No, it’s not Florida. It’s not the sugar-white sand of 30A. Know what else it’s not? Over-populated! If you’re my age you might remember Destin vacations as a kid with precious little to do but build sand castles, play in the surf, and watch your Dad chase sand crabs.

Well take a moment and consider trying something new. Port A is known for its beautiful beaches but have you considered exploring the Nature Preserves? Read more

Boats and boating are such a blessed relief from the woes and divisions of the world. So an email from Gerard Mittelstaedt about a bunch of kids building Mouseboats at Farley Boat Works at Port Aransas, Texas (it’s not far from Corpus Christi) had me grinning from ear to ear, as emails like this /always/ do. Thanks Gerard! Read more

The Port Aransas Spoonbills' team site is the observation tower at the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center. We had good luck with the weather -- after days of strong south winds, the night before our Big Sit the wind turned around and blew from the north all day long. @Great Texas Birding Classic Read more
