The world is full of beautiful beaches, especially Texas since it has 600 miles of sparkling coastlines, piers, ports, seawalls and cities that thrive on its trade. As a photographer I have had the pleasure of shooting most parts of South Texas throughout my entire life. It’s a haven for migratory feathered friends, birdwatching, wildlife, bar hopping events, beachcombing, spring breaks, resort vacations, fishing, Victorian homes and building sand castles. Never did I miss an opportunity, come rain or cold weather, to pull my shoes off and take a footsy splash in the Gulf waters. I’ve camped out on the beach and weathered out coastal storms and hurricanes. Whether you are sightseeing or a resident of the southern state, the attractions are endless; from the Schlitterbahn to the beaches of Padre Island you can plan an abundance of adventures with its museums, historical monuments and sites, day trips into Mexico, parks and nature trails, golfing, dining, cultural arts, racing, rodeos, cruises, missions and mansions!
