A FOGGY DAY IN ROCKPORT We arrived in Rockport on a day that was exactly the opposite of the arrival day for our previous magazine issue on Fayetteville. The fog covered the town for the entire day. The sample picture in the magazine demonstrates the fog which is compared to the clear view the next day. Usually, we take all of our photos on one day and we were prepared to use the fog day pictures since there is a deadline for this publication. However, Rockport was so enjoyable that we easily decided to extend the deadline and risk better weather the next day. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the many sites and activities on the fog day, but the next day was even better! Rockport’s waterfront has beautiful views, a maritime museum, an aquarium, a harbor filled with boats and onsite fresh seafood for purchase, an art center, and a nearby heritage district with shopping. The Rockport Beach is Texas’ first Blue Wave Beach. We found the people of Rockport very friendly and helpful. We purchased shrimp from a lady that moved to Rockport from Houston 3 years ago and she said that she loves the Rockport area and the people. Looking to move to Rockport?
