Re: Texas to Mex. Riviera, to Cayamans

On a side note..... I remember when the kemah pier had about a dozen shrimp boats that would sell direct to the public right off the back of the boat... and less than 20 slips for pleasure craft.
I remember my dad getting irate because the transient slips were over $7 a nite.
Now, with the boardwalk/midway attractions, transient slips are past $60 a night....If u can find one !
what a change!

some call it progress.......I call it trappings.....

Longing for simpler times.......seems like 99% are moving in the other direction.
Sometimes I am amazed just how complicated and difficult it can be to try to simplify things.

Oh the irony....
