Yesterday I went to Matagorda County for some work stuff, and took a detour to the beach there. It was very peaceful (other than people driving on the beach, which annoys me!). I picked up some neat shells and walked a long way.

Which brings me to today’s soap box…. There is an election on, did you know? It is for amendments to the Texas Constitution. Amendment 9 will preserve our access to beaches in the state. See this Surfrider Foundation page and this Galveston County Daily News article for more information. Vote YES on Proposition 9!
