My most favorite get-aways tend to contain some sort of ocean or waterfront view! I love being near water and the feeling of sand on my feet. Being in Texas, it takes a good bit of time to make a trip down to the coast for a day trip to the ocean, but that is exactly what we decided to do. My Sister, Brother-in-law, mom, and I, all decided we wanted a beach escape. So, we headed down to the gulf coast to see what fun we could find--there was plenty to be discovered!
