There’s More to it Than Birds

The Rockport / Fulton, Texas area has more to offer than birding.  Although you have to admit, the birds are pretty spectacular and if you weren’t a birder when you first arrive, you just might turn into one by the time you leave.birding in Texas

The little town of Fulton sits just to the north of Rockport.  This is where I find myself spending most of my time – cruising up and down Fulton Beach Road.  I call it ‘my scenic route’ to the store because I’ll take the extra time to travel off the beaten path on my way to the H-E-B Grocery Store and Super Wal-Mart which are located off the main drag – Highway 35.shrimp fishingfresh seafoodThe title Fulton Beach Road is a bit of a misnomer because there is no sandy beach.  The town of Fulton is more of a harbor town.  The working fishermen along with their boats are quite often found docked in the harbor by late afternoon.  This is a great place to pick up fresh shrimp and fish.  Our favorite is the Grouper.Gulf of Mexico

I assure you, my little RV freezer will be well stocked with grouper and shrimp by the time we leave this beautiful part of Texas.Texas shore

Since I’m fighting a bit of a head cold, the brain isn’t working in the writing department so I’ll leave you with more images of the area and you’ll see why I know Al and I will return to this part of Texas again 🙂fresh seafoodGulf of Mexicosunrise across the GulfAllegroGulf shoresoak treeGulf of MexicoRVing in Texasbirding in TexasGulf of Mexico sunset
