  • I've been going to my Texas beach since the 60s. The beach is wonderful. I don't know what happened but the whole area turned into a Trump support group. sad

  • Fabulous. The kids did not want to leave! We came here between Christmas and new year while visiting family in Dallas. We live in England and wanted to experience Texas so organised a road trip.
