Views of the Neighborhood – Fall Festival

Last weekend was the Fall Fest at Emmaus Catholic Parish. The fest is a major fundraiser for the Parish. I stopped by and was amazed at everything that was going on. I thought you would enjoy seeing it as well. This post has way too many photos, but this is a fraction of those I […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Community Spirit – A Repost on the Second Anniversary of Hurricane Harvey.

Since this is the second anniversary of Hurricane Harvey which devastated Port Aransas, I thought I would repeat a post that ran after the hurricane showing the community spirit there.

Views of the Neighborhood – Driveways

I know it seems a little odd to feature driveways on Views of the Neighborhood. I just found that some of them are so steep up or down that I couldn’t help myself in taking pictures of them. They may interest you as well. Here is one that drops about thirty feet and then you have […]
