Starting Over: An East Texan in Western Ireland

Storm Fion, the third named storm of the season is hitting the West Coast of Ireland at the moment. (And we thought we were getting away from Galveston’s tropical storms!)

Next Chapter: Moving to Ireland

Dear Friends:

I’ve been doing a lot of fishing lately. Spent three weekends in November on Galveston Bay, Matagorda Bay and the Lower Laguna Madre. I didn’t catch a lot of fish, but that’s okay. It was my way of saying goodbye to the Coastal Bend of Texas, my home for the last few […]

Captain Buddy down at Katie’s Seafood is a TV Star!

Galveston’s most popular seafood market and the family that runs the place are featured on a new National Geo reality TV show. It seems to be an imitation of Deadliest Catch, only without the icy water. Sure it’s a little contrived, like all reality TV shows, but its great to see Galveston and our […]
