Rockport Texas is a town close to Port Aransas and was hit by Hurricane Harvey as well. Since the sun was out for the first time in ten years, the Producer and I decided to drive there and check up on how my books fared in the bookstores. Although we didn’t locate any books we found a number of things to look at.
This is a shot of a multi-tiered boat storage facility.
Here is one a little closer. This facility was packed with boats when the Hurricane hit.
Here is a shot of old town Rockport. (Excuse the sun glare) The brick gallery (Estelle Stair) is one place where my books are. The gallery is closed. The other place where my books were offered for sale is a bookstore which was blown away.
Here is a photo of across the street. You can see the blue tarp on the building.
I took this photo to give you an idea that Rockport is indeed on the water. This is one of the marinas.
This is a shot of the veteran’s memorial. There are names of Rockport residents who gave their lives in all the wars from 1914 on.
This is the Maritime Museum.
Unknown to us, the Rockport Fulton Market Days was in full swing. A number of pop-up with all kinds of crafts. We had to go look.
Attendees can visit this display and take what they need at no charge.
Here is a “look through” shot showing other displays
A festive occasion.
Terrific yard art
A beautiful Airstream full of clothes
Must have a food stand.
For Dan Antion, I had to take a picture of the soft pretzel booth
Let me leave you with a picture of the bay and beautiful sculpture.
