Can only give limited impressions at this point, as so far I've only been in the northern half of Galveston Bay. One thing, it's HOT down here. July and August have been very hot (to me), but there always seems to be some wind out in the Bay.

From Clear Lake (the Houston end of the Bay) to Galveston is about 5 hours. Galveston to Port Aransas/Corpus Christi is about 24 hours (offshore). From what I have been told, the ICW in Texas should only be a last resort.

I'll be going further out after Labor Day and am thinking about the Harvest Moon Regatta (Galveston to Port Aransas) the beginning of October, so if you're still looking for info in a month, I'll have seen more by then.

Good luck with your move,

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
