Matagorda Beach

This is one of the best things about Matagorda: the pier. It goes way, way out over the water, and, at the end, you can actually step on to the large rocks and be "in" the sea. This is coolest at night, when there are tons of fishers out there, pulling up all these huge fish and even sharks. When you get all the way out, you feel like you are in your own world in the middle of the ocean.
I could stay out there for a long, long time.

Right now, there is some damage to the pier about halfway out (you can kind of see it) from a couple of hurricanes ago, but a fishing couple I talked to said it is expected that it will be fixed and open again for Memorial Day.

I really love the ocean at night, and have been known to, on vacation, take a chair and go sit on the beach for hours and listen to the waves.

Don't think I've ever been on the pier there, but it looks very cool.
