#Texas Strong

The devastation by Hurricane Harvey touched all My Coastal World, the North Bay area, even if unequally. Portland and Gregory, at the southern end, received less wind and storm surge than the communities slightly to their north. Rockport and Fulton experienced the eye wall of Harvey with Category 4 winds on August 25.

Shrimp boats fill docks in Conn Brown Harbor

Anyone who goes to Conn Brown Harbor this weekend may be surprised to see the large number of Gulf shrimp boats which are now docked. During the Texas Shrimp Season, these boats visit the harbor regularly to bring their catch to Erickson & Jenson Shrimp Packers but usually only two or three will be docked at the same time. On Wednesday, August 9, 15 shrimpers were counted with some tied alongside another boat.
